Education

Teaching is a big part of my life. It is a new career for me and I will likely have many posts on an education theme. I am very passionate about teaching and it has been a very fulfilling career so far. I’m hoping it will continue to be even though I keep reading all these horror stories in the news and on Reddit. These are all the posts that involve education in one way or another.

If you would like posts on the nitty-gritty of teaching – the day to day stuff – then check out by teaching blog: bravinteaching.
