Why I Stay

I’ve started blogging for the fabulous site Stories from School.  Stories from School features accomplished teachers, mostly National Board Certified Teachers, writing about practice and policy from inside classrooms in Arizona and Washington.  Check out their Arizona page here.  Blogging for Stories from School is a dream come true and makes me feel like a “real blogger” especially since I’ve followed their site for ages.  Please find my August blog post here about what motivates me to stay in teaching when so many are fleeing.
