Welcome to my blog. I’m an educational scholar (of modest achievement), teacher (20 years in the classroom) and most recently an educational bureaucrat. This blog is my attempt to synthesize the best of all three worlds. Good teaching and sound educational policy are a mix of science, practice and art. The best available research evidence is helpful, but it is nowhere near precise enough to tell a teacher what to do on a day-to-day basis. That’s practice–or is that praxis?

Enjoy. Keep learning.
