Hello and welcome! I’m a 6th grade teacher in Minnesota. This is where I share what I learn about teaching, learning, and psychology.

I publish a new article every few weeks, send out the 3 Things Newsletter every Friday, and capture notes on valuable books I read.

To begin, my most read articles are listed below:

Making Lessons 85% Review: The Genius Behind Engelmann’s Teaching to Mastery

Rethinking Rigor: Desirable Difficulties vs. Heavy Lifting

Tracing the Origins: “Reading Comprehension Strategies”
