My name is Maria Lee. I am the designer of Empower Students to Own Their Learning. I taught English as a Second Language for 19 years. I am a retired teacher. You might wonder why I am still in education, sometimes too.

My Teaching Journey

My journey in teaching involves reflections, professional development, and teacher pay teacher. I spent hours and hours searching for ideas, reading books, and planning lessons. Sounds familiar? I love to buy teaching books. I spent a significant amount of money, My husband wanted to “kill me” sometimes. I read many teaching websites and found intriguing ideas I like to use for teaching. I did this for a while, I fell in love with writing teaching blogs. I am a fan of writing blog posts.

I find writing blogs therapeutic. I published my first blog with Teacher Discovery. I realized what good writing looks like. Confianza, an education consulting company, has asked me to be a contributor since 2019. I published a blog on racism in May 2021 and published a How to Have an Honest Conversation About Racism article in June. I am also doing a blog series on Instructional Coaching. You can visit to learn more about my blogs.

I am motivated to help, inspire, and teach (H.I. T.) as my writing logo.

Mission Statement: Empower Student Learning

I understand teachers have a tremendous responsibility for teaching, assessing, and responding to student learning needs. I am here to help you by giving you information on Timeless Teaching Practices through various Teacher Professional Development books that you rarely find on Pinterest or Google.

My blog ideas are based on information I find in published books from various publishing companies. I peruse publishing company catalogs to find books that have interesting topics on Teacher Clarity, Visible Learning, or Making Thinking Visible. I love good teaching strategies and am excited to share with educators who have the passion for learning.
