What an odd thing to write…
A former middle and high school English (and Chemistry!) teacher, I am currently an assistant professor of English Education at Virginia Tech. I am a writer of books for teachers (Bringing the Outside In, The Tech Savvy English Classroom), research articles on student learning and teacher pedagogies with new literacies and emerging technologies, a consultant and speaker who works (happily) across the county with teachers and kids who are thinking about learning in rich, multi-literate ways, and, perhaps most importantly, a mom. This blog captures my thinking on this moment in time where it is both exhilarating and daunting to be an English teacher, a reader, and a writer.
Not only do you speak sense, but you teach at my alma mater!! Go Hokies! Go Sara!
You are the only other english and chemistry type I know:) – those were my subjects prior to doing the tech thing. Just had dkuropatwa speak at our school…had a Vatech enginnering professor join us- told him to look you up – Tom Walker-
can’t wait to learn more from you!
