First Amendment lovin' Texan wife, mother, teacher, writer, low-carb living zumba backslider, addicted to Survivor, BBC Mysteries and Phrynne Fisher.

I talk a lot and blog a lot and write a lot and tweet a lot. My husband wishes I'd clean a lot, but he loves me anyway. I love my day job. I'm a public education advocate and activist and true education reformer. Don't even get me started about testing and politicians and what they've done to the schools the last two decades.

My name is now three easy names, but I was born Mary Beth Hagberg. When you move to Texas with the last name Hagberg, prepare for harassment. The name was like Smith in Minnesota, but where I live now...yeah. Not.

My dad wanted to name me Beth, but my mom said no because she

Guns are the problem

I tell myself I’d throw my body in front of a killer intent on shooting my students. I tell myself that every time there’s another school shooting. That means I tell myself this at least monthly and usually more often than that.


The last month more than one student died throwing themselves in front of killers with guns. And both of them have been lauded as heroes.


They are. They are heroes. But t...

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.”

“I don't love you anymore", she whispered. "I don't love you at all." His throat closed. "It's all right, sweetheart. I love you enough for both of us.”

“She threw up her hands. "All right. Why not?"

Why not?"

Sure."

His arms fell to his sides. "That's it? I pour my heart out. I love you so much I've got freakin' tears in my eyes. And all I get in return is 'Why not'?"

What did you expect? Am I supposed to fall all over you just because you've finally come to your senses?"

Would it be too much to ask?"...He'd begun to glare at her again, his eyes growing stormier by the minute."When do you think you might be ready? To fall all over me, that is.”

“I finally figured out that not every crisis can be managed. As much as we want to keep ourselves safe, we can't protect ourselves from everything. If we want to embrace life, we also have to embrace chaos.”
