Welcome to my blog! I am a graduate student earning a Master's degree in school counseling at Assumption College in Worcester, MA. I will be chronicling my studies to become a guidance counselor and working through my ideas for how we can dramatically improve education for all our students - a task terribly overdo. I hope you'll join my conversations and contribute to the process of creating school systems that support every child's dreams to succeed.

I plan to spend a life-long career in education - as a school counselor, education reformer, and eventually as a teacher. Some people think that my ideas are too optimistic, naive, and even impossible.
  • First, I welcome this reaction because it only energizes me further. 
  • Second, someone has to believe that the impossible is, indeed, possible. 
  • Third, true education reform will take years, probably decades - and this is the reason to start as soon as possible, not to make excuses about politics, the public, the educations system or whatever reason you choose.
We must work through each and every obstacle until we find the path that leads us to the best possible education system for our children - no matter how long it takes. Our children deserve the best possible education our country can provide and a case can be made that the future of our country depends on it.

Thank you for reading my blog and I look forward to our discussions.

  1. On number 2, let me quote Timothy Ferris from The Four Hour Workweek--"Doing the Unrealistic is easier than Doing the Realistic."

    When you're motivated towards a big goal, you put all of your heart into it. If you plan for a trip to the Bahamas, you may work 20 hour days to save for it. If you take a trip to Ohio, you wouldn't think to downgrade cerael boxes for it.
