It’s a new school year, and we’re excited to welcome a new crop of bloggers to the fold for Fall 2014. Some faces probably look familiar to you, but others are brand new. We have writers who are teachers, students and school counselors. And we’re hoping to add a higher education focused blogger in the weeks ahead!
In any case — there will be plenty to read, no matter who you are and what type of content you’re seeking. So, be sure to give us a follow!

|A Milwaukee native, Aubrey Murtha is an ambitious freshman in the Marquette College of Education majoring in secondary education and writing intensive English with plans to pursue a Spanish minor. Although she admits that her teaching experiences likely pale in comparison to those of her blogging contemporaries, her service work in both the public and private sectors of Milwaukee’s urban school system illustrate her blooming passion for educating. She credits the incredible faculty at Divine Savior Holy Angels High School with inspiring her to pursue a degree in secondary education and helping her discover her knack for writing. When she is not scrambling to complete her schoolwork, Aubrey enjoys performing renditions of Eminem rap ballads for her friends, watching Jack Black (her second teaching inspiration) in School of Rock, and dabbling in the visual arts.
