Teacher’s Reference Guides

My “teacher’s reference guides” are deep dives into a subject, theme, person, or idea which are then distilled into (hopefully) clear, concise, and helpful resources. My goal is to effectively share what I think are the most actionable, impactful, and noteworthy takeaways of the topic at hand.

There isn’t much rhyme or reason to how I choose these teacher’s reference guides.  Sometimes I want to dive deep on a specific concept such as complexity and spend months reading about that and sometimes I simply stumble across a person or topic randomly which captures my attention – trying to balance serendipity and chaos with routine and order.
