On January 18, 2015, after blogging anonymously for nearly 33 months, I finally revealed my identity. As some of my biggest fans have noticed, since I began this blog, my writing has received a modicum of renown.
I am currently the superintendent of Mid-Del Public Schools, and I have worked in public education in Oklahoma since 1993. I am a third generation Oklahoman and second generation teacher. I believe in the importance of well-funded public schools in which teachers have the freedom to teach using their own professional judgment.
I began this blog in 2012 to stem the tide of the false narrative about failing public schools. While I don’t know everything about public education, I know enough to detect inconsistencies from the people and groups who would like to destroy it. With your help, I would like to give parents, teachers, administrators, board members, and any concerned Oklahoman a voice to set the record straight. If you have questions, complaints or suggestions, feel free to contact me via Twitter, Facebook, or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
