What Happened to Capere?

Hello Loyal Folks,

Greetings to any and all of you who still visit this site and/or have faith in Capere.

Sarah and I worked diligently on Capere all summer, and there are actually 24 complete pages waiting to see the light of day but currently InDesign.

As I was saying, Sarah and I worked on Capere all summer and had hopes of completing everything but printing by September. Then, we both received our schedules and instead of submitting to Capere we submitted to school and survival.

At this point, Sarah is a new mom, (Congratulations!) and I am in the throes of producing school newspapers and a yearbook and prepping my kids for the writing test.  Needless to say, Capere is on hold. Fear not, 'tis nary a raisin in the sun.

We are grateful to all who submitted and excited by all the submissions.

I hope, as you do too, to see the fruits of our labors in print.

walk good,
alexis and sarah


The Word

Hello Lovely People,

Yay! We're going to have a magazine! Thank you for all of your contributions. To date, we have completed submissions from the following people: Phillip Barron and Nancy Gallman, John Castner, Alexis Pauline Gumbs, Julia Leonard, Nicole Oxendine, Matthew Ramadan, Matthew Sears, Anthony Swaringen, John Troutman, Courtney Wait, and Jack Watson, Nick Winstead.

Don't throw away those course evaluations yet! Although we are currently in the production process, we encourage you to submit one of the following items to enhance the balance of content in the journal:

Reasons for Staying - Thank you notes or letters from your students, parents, co-workers, or administrators; stories of light bulb moments or epiphanies; or anything else that exemplifies why you teach.

Better Practices - Research and/or narratives of exemplary activities, curricula, assessments, or other "better practices" you are willing to share.

Exit Interviews - An anonymous exit interview about why you are leaving your school, your district, and/or teaching.


Finally, thank you to everyone for your support, encouragement, and contributions. We will keep you posted as we progress.

walk good,
alexis and sarah


Kudos to You...

You all rock! Thank you for successfully supporting and submitting. Those of you who are currently in possession of a "work in progress," as some of you are, please send those to us no later than Sunday, June 3.

We'll give you all a content update at the end of the week.

walk good,
alexis and sarah
