About Me

I am a mom who developed an interest in education when my children entered the public school system.   My background includes work as a petroleum geologist as well as in financial planning and investments.  I am a CFP© professional, but my writing here does not serve to offer financial planning advice .

This blog helps me organize information about some of my favorite education topics, which include math curriculum, writing instruction, school reform, charter schools, college admissions, paying for college, gender differences, achievement gaps, e-learning, special education, gifted students  and . . . well, you get the picture.
