TeacherReality is a Reading Teacher in a Title I elementary school in Florida where about 1 out of 7 of the students are designated homeless or "students in transition". At this elementary school, TeacherReality has seen the negative effects of NCLB and narrowed curriculum. Prior to teaching in Florida, she began her teaching career in a Title I middle school in San Diego under Superintendent Alan Bersin's reign. She had made a mid-career change change to become a teacher after working in sales and marketing for high-tech companies and realizing she needed to do more for children in her community. She now has a total of 10 years in the teaching field and sees the current "ed reform" push as a "business first" strategy to do away with unions and privatize education so that profit centers can be set up and money can be made. As an advocate for children and public education she has become active in fighting against the current "ed reform" push by blogging, tweeting, writing letters, protesting, and becoming more involved in political elections. She is a trained community organizer and holds a B.S. degree in Business Management and a Masters degree in Business Administration (Marketing).
