Welcome to my Mississippi Teacher Corps Portfolio.  This site holds some of my memories, thoughts, plans, ideas and pictures from my past two years as a science teacher at Meridian High School.  Although by no means complete, I hope it helps future teachers walk into the classroom with open eyes.


No snow in Mississippi, but teaching feels like a race a lot of the time.

Before teaching I spent a lot of time in college nordic ski racing.  Mississippi doesn’t have snow, let alone skiing.  Nevertheless, over the course of the past two years, I’ve discovered a couple similarities between racing and teaching.  Those similarities, time, planning, loneliness, infinite variables, are explained throughout the websiteNo cotton fields or snow in Meridian, still teaching feels like a race.
