Ms. V.

My name is Jaime. I care about growth of the human spirit and my family.

This started as an education blog and has metamorphosesed; it’s still education, but with a form that represents all forms.

Educate yourself. Grow. Learn.

    I’m loving what you have to say about education! It’s about time our generation starts to speak up, because what currently happening in the political limelight is going to have a major impact on our future as public employees. I stand by your side, look forward to reading more, and fight the good fight for us and our children!

    Good morning, Miss Jamie! I am tickled to see you leading the charge for education. Lately, it feels as if public education and those of us who have chosen this profession are under a coordinated attack. Don’t get me wrong. I am not an apoligist for the status quo. Public education needs reforming. I love your quote about research-based pedagogy. In recent years there has been an explosion of new ideas by the likes of Art Costa, Robert Marzano, Bena Kallick, Grant Wiggins, and Richard Stiggins. These folks are the rockstars of our profession. Unfortunately there has been a disconnect between those charged with professional development at the building level of most districts and an increasingly aging population of teachers who are unfamiliar with the new research and data. Old dogs CAN learn new tricks, and I believe that if public education is going to survive and thrive those of us at the local level are going to have to embrace change and light an educational evangelical fire under the behinds of the old guard. In addition to this, we need young, idealistic young teachers to remind us of why we entered the profession in the first place. : )
