I used to live in Bloomfield. I know where you teach. I have friends among the Dine. I know the scars whereof you speak. You are doing a wonderful job with your students--and I so much appreciate your writing of your experiences. Thank you!

Hey, I came to your blog via a link from edweek. While I think your writing is interesting, your header is misleading. Nobody joins TFA by accident, just like nobody gets into a good law school by accident. After almost a year in the classroom, you know more about education that most people here in DC. Give yourself some credit and own up to being a teacher by choice, even if it is just for two years.


It's a tremendous culture shock. I grew up on a reservation, put myself through college, and now teach on the east coast. It's incredible that you went all the way to the reservation to find yourself. I had to leave to find myself and better myself. You're in a tough position. Good luck to you.

Awesome, I was actually sent to your article from a friend. He suggested it since we were having a talk about this subject the other night.
