Braggy McBraggerson

I have debated sharing this because I didn't want to come off as too self-congratulatory, but I have decided that enough of you have shown interest and support in our lives that I would post this.

At the beginning of the school year, a writer from Education Week came to observe several classes at our school. They later contacted me to do a teacher profile and sent a photographer to my classroom. The article was printed in Education Week and is also featured on their website, along with the profile and a video of me. I'm trying to get my hands on a paper copy of the article, since it features a really cute picture of one of my students and me. Here are the links!

The article about the Professional Development program, Quality Teachers for English Learners.

The Teacher Profile on me. (The video is towards the bottom. The still shot before it starts is terrible!)


  1. Awesome profile of your skills, Laurie! Glad you decided to share! Congratulations on the recognition of your hard work.

  2. Goodness gracious, girl, shout it from the rooftops! To receive national press attention for the hard work you've been doing is such a huge and well-deserved honor. Congratulations! I hope you and Robin celebrated with some champagne!

    On an entirely selfish note, I see this as a huge bonus for when you're applying for jobs in Minneapolis. ;)
