I’m starting my – gasp! – 8th year teaching middle school science in the south Bronx. I also do yoga, eat vegetarian food, bake cakes, go to concerts, and seek out the odd & interesting corners of New York City and the adventures to be found within. This blog is mostly about teaching and education, but it’s also about science, politics, yoga, books, music, and whatever catches my fancy. You will probably disagree with me a lot but let’s keep it kind. I believe in changing one’s mind, admitting one’s mistakes, apologizing for the hurt one causes, and allowing others to do the same!
