Bio: Jake Miller teaches 7th graders how to be good citizens, and most pick up American history along the way.
He is also actively involved in the community and politics. He's testified in front of the Pennsylvania State Assembly, debated "educational reformers," and is the President of Cumberland Valley Education Association, one of the largest unions in Pennsylvania.
He is a two-sport official (wrestling & baseball), fan of music, hummus geek, an avid proponent of public education, and has fun in the classroom -- Every. Single. Day.
Writing is Jake's passion; he's written more than 300 articles on education, most for The Educator's Room, but also has appeared in The Washington Post, The Philadelphia Inquirer, The Harrisburg Patriot-News, and The Guardian Magazine. He proudly serves as a features and opinion writer for our website.
Welcome! I'm Franchesca Warren. I taught high school for 13 years and currently work as a learning consultant and instructional coach based in Atlanta, Ga. I created this site in 2012 because I love not only collaborating with other teachers, but I wanted to build a network that shows that teachers are the experts in education. Please join our community of over 30 educators as we write about what's really going on in our classroom!
