You can’t think your way to new hungersJames K. A. Smith
Hi. I’m Jordan Mayer.
I’m a former middle school teacher and current secondary ELL/LST teacher on a quest to transform schools into spaces of wonder, creativity and imaginative learning. I want to see teachers and students unleash their creative potential to make the world a better place.
I share what I’m learning in books, articles, podcasts, professional development sessions and my daily practice. I would also like to begin creating some free resources this year to share with other teachers.
Teaching can be a lonely, thankless job with few supports. I believe that every student needs a champion and so does every teacher. With this site, I hope to create a vibrant, encouraging community of teachers supporting each other in their struggles and pushing toward excellence.
