About Mrs. M.

Oh, hai!

I am Jodie Morgenson, an English Language Arts teacher in Nebraska and I’m heading into my 22nd year of teaching. By blogging publicly, I hope to create a space of sharing, and reflection for my students, their parents, and other educators.

This blog represents my thoughts, not those of my employer, colleagues, students, or family members. One of my main loves in life is dialogue, so I would love to hear from you, whether you agree or disagree with me.

Many times I work things out in my mind, or try things on for size right here in my blog, so many of the words you read here are the unfinished, transitory, contemplations of an eccentric, eclectic teacher from the middle of the United States. The longer I teach, the curiouser* life becomes.


*The word curiouser was coined by Lewis Caroll in Alice in Wonderland, which is a childhood favorite of mine.

One thought on “About Mrs. M.

  1. Hi Jodie,

    My name’s Daniel and I’m the Program Director for Hope in a Box. I wanted to let you know that you’ve reached the top of our waitlist to receive Hope in a Box! I emailed you and Blake Tobey, but I got your email reply that you no longer work at Waverly. Are you currently teaching at a different school? In that case, would you be interested in getting Hope in a Box for your current school? I haven’t heard back from Blake, so figured I might try messaging you here 🙂 Anyway, if you’d be interested, feel free to request a new donation at https://www.hopeinabox.org/take-action and we will ship you a box of books in time for school this fall! You can email me at daniel@hopeinabox.org if you have any questions, or message us on Twitter @HopeinaBoxInc
