This future educrat really seems to grok home education. Well worth a read.

Agree, both good stuff.

But did you notice. . .

Last Monday –
“Brandon Hendrickson is a history and religious studies graduate, currently working as a tutor and studying to teach high-school American history.”

This Monday –
“Brandon Hendrickson is a history and religious studies graduate student. He is currently working as a tutor and studying educational theory.”

Of course neither tells us if he’s “studying” at school or independently, how his studies are being paid for, or with what accountability. (Wonder how he’ll be defined next week?? Maybe this is how he gets folks to keep tuning in?)

Actually, it’s a rather complicated situation. The paper (the State Press) encourages us to come up with new by-lines each week, so I try to personalize mine for each column. I’m working with an ASU History professor to come up with a curriculm for first-semester high school American history, though I’m not currently a student at Arizona State.

Maybe I should make next week’s byline more colorful still. Something like, “Brandon Hendrickson bathes regularly and spends his free time corrupting the minds of Phoenix youth. He is currently standing right behind you! Ahhh!!!”

And can I say how weird (and oddly flattering) it is to Google one’s name and find strangers discussing one’s profession?

Lucky for you that you didn’t rag on home education. Your ego googling would have melted your monitor. 🙂

I for one am glad that your author page on UrbanDictionary.com is still the first google result.
