Writer, Educator, Advocate, Activist

I am a writer, passionate educator, parent and student advocate and activist for public education. I am a doctoral candidate in special education and brain-based teaching, learning and leadership. 


Below are a handful of interviews I have done about Common Core and high stakes testing.

An hour long update on Opt Out Georgia, the Georgia legislature and education, the most recent legislative session and what we need to see from the Feds to save Public Education.

Another great time with Will Stauff! Today we talked about Arne Duncans personal executive orders, WAIVERS. We also discuss the damage being done to the most vulnerable student populations. (12/10/14)

A great interview with Will Stauff on Blogtalk Radio! We discuss Common Core in Georgia. New Georgia School Superintendent, Richard Woods begins the show and my segment begins at 26:00. (Original air date 11/13/14)

A wonderful full hour with Tamara Scott discussing Common Core

Discussion about high stakes testing and opting out with Kathleen Jasper, Alice Linahan and Tamara Scott

FreedomWorks interview. This interview was early in my fight. I have since learned that FW co-opted much of my efforts and used my name as a pro-school choice voice. This could not be further from the truth. I do not believe in, nor do I support school choice. I know that FW raised a great deal of money to "fight" Common Core, but they have since taken that money and disappeared from the battle.
