There are so many brilliant educators around the world writing about education. I'm grateful for that. So, it feels strange to single out one, but Zac Chase's recent posts have been so amazingly reflective, thoughtful, and thought-provoking that I felt an urge to share. If you aren't reading him currently, check it out. He's an English teacher at Science Leadership Academy. He turned 30 a couple of days ago, which actually makes him three or four years older than I would have guessed and makes me feel a little better.
I teach first grade, which is worlds away from high school in so many ways. However, I am pushed to think about my own work when I read Zac's writing. To be honest, that's one of my favorite things about the blogosphere. It has broadened my horizons. I learn from folks in and out of classrooms at all levels and in all areas around the world. That's pretty awesome.
Zac is writing a series of posts, "Things I Know" daily this year. That's quite a goal and I'm amazed he's not only kept it up but kept the quality so high. Go give him a read.
