Tree Rings - Recently, I've begun to collect some of my thoughts related to climate change and its relationship with teaching and learning on a new blog, Tree Rings. I believe that educators have a unique position and power to shape our world. Given the rapid ecological and social change we're experiencing, we must ask ourselves what teaching and learning should look like in the years to come.
Sound Questions - Inspired by both Listening Point (below) and a sound-walking curriculum I wrote for children, I created Sound Questions to begin to record and share some open-ended questions that I and other educators could use to explore the soundworlds around us. This site is intended to be a constant work in progress.
Listening closely - In May 2014, I launched Listening Point, a community soundscape project. To my surprise, it caught some press early on and was featured in INDY Week. Since then, I've written about the project and continue to work on its next iteration.
Sourdough - I have kept a whole wheat sourdough starter for a couple years and continue to work on my technique as a home bread baker.
