Room 123

In room one twenty three...


We talk the talk

And walk the walk

We graph

And we laugh

We read, discuss, and write

Sometimes the words have a bite


We dance

Talk about France

We play

And mold clay

We invent and investigate

Sometimes we instigate


We dare 

To social media we share

Deep down we care 

When we say we don't 

We put up a front

We're unaware how easily we scare 


We don't run

But we have fun

We fight, but we're polite

Perfect we're not

We don't try to be

We learn so we can see


We roar

And we soar 

Yes we fly

We reach and grab for the sky

Sometimes we fall

Sometimes we cry 


We fall

But we get up

We get rocked

But then we roll

Whatever it takes we rise up

We climb right back to the top


We are all we're meant to be

In room one twenty three...


The classroom is such a weird and wonderful place isn't it?

Thanks for reading and I hope you enjoyed this poem. Please share it if you think other educators and non-educators might enjoy it. I will feature a weekly poem/rap/comic to provoke reflection and inspiration in my NEWSLETTER, so please SIGN UP if you dig that.

And Remember: You have the power to change the world. Use it often.

I founded Focus 2 Achieve to provide innovative classroom tools that empower teachers and help students achieve more success. In my first life, I am a husband, a father, and a teacher. In my second life, I spend time discovering what "really works" aka "best practices" in education, problem-solving, and creating products for teachers and students. I recently wrote a book titled "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom." It is a book designed for Students that uses brain research and brain based learning strategies to help student become better learners. The book can be used by Teachers to help students learn more effectively, and Parents to help their children become more aware of how they learn. 


I have a BS in Earth and Environmental Sciences and an MA in Teaching. I teach high school Chemistry and Principles of Engineering and my professional interests focus on discovering and learning how the human mind learns and acquires lasting knowledge and skills, so that I can help my (and other) students learn more effectively and achieve greater academic success.


I am also a fan of the Jedi order (and use DA FORCE frequently), ninjas (both masked and unmasked), and the superhero in all of us. Oh, and I am on a Quest to Change the World, because I can. I believe we all can.
