My first professional essay! Published with gratitude by the Heterodox Academy. In this essay I discuss my thoughts around how changes in college attendance over the decades have changed the mission of high school.

That cultural shift has changed what is taught in high school and how people value what they learn there. Published April 2023.

My first published essay! Sharing ideas about teaching during the first couple of months of Covid when we were 100% online. This is where I really discovered the joy of writing; the idea that you could start writing about one thing and then the story "wants" to go in another direction was simply fascinating to me. The idea that we can steer the ship but that we can't really control the final destination is fascinating and makes me see why people love writing despite how awful it is while you are doing it.
