Hello, and thank you for visiting Pondering Education!

As a passionate educator and aspiring school administrator, I tend to have a lot to say regarding education. Since you’re visiting this site, it’s safe to say that you do as well. Unfortunately, it can be hard to get our thoughts publicized by education blogs. It can be particularly disheartening if we have something to say that can potentially help students find academic and social success in our schools. For that reason, I created the Pondering Education blog and soon-to-come podcast.

Pondering Education welcomes all stakeholders of public schools to voice their opinions on all things related to education by becoming a contributor to the site. If you’re a teacher, administrator, guidance counselor, school committee member, etc., I encourage you to submit your information by clicking on the “Write for Us” button located in the top right hand corner of the website.

So, what are you waiting for? Let your voice be heard! By working together, we can provide our students with the best academic experience possible.
