Full Disclosure

I explore a variety of topics on my blog, Celebrating Failure in Rm 23. I do not own my own domain and my blog is hosted at the no cost Blogger domain.

Making a Living
How do I make a living? I'm currently a social science teacher at Minarets High School where I teach Minarets Cs for freshmen, World History for sophomores, and Digital Journalism elective course. I'm also the CSF and NHS chapter adviser. While I am not paid, I'm also a Google Certified Innovator, Apple Teacher, Google Certified Educator, Pear Deck Certified Coach, Remind Educator, and Prezi Educator.

So, you’re a blogger, huh?
Yes, I’m a blogger. I started my Celebrating Failure in Rm 23 blog in August of 2014 and I don’t get paid for blogging, nor do I advertise on my blog – although I do post about items or products when I believe that they would be of interest to the general K-12 teachers. My blog is dedicated to my reflections, inspiration, and exploration of issues in education, specifically my classroom. 

DISCLOSURES
Media ties: I have no media ties.

Stocks: I own no stocks.

Religion: I have never blogged about religion and I don't plan to, but I was raised as Protestant.

Politics: I am a registered republican, but I consider myself an independent.
