Hello and Welcome!!

Hello, everyone! It’s been a while since I’ve blogged. I find this method of communication to be so engaging for both writer and reader and I look forward to continuing the education dialogue here, with you, on a regular basis.

I am hopeful this place will turn in to a repository for several types of pieces: Anecdotes about my schools visits, highlighting the great things our members are doing in public schools, and my take on political issues impacting our members and the students we serve on a daily basis.

Do you have a topic you’d like to see me cover? Want me to visit your school or classroom? Please email me at mike.matthews@dsea.org and I will work to make it happen!

In Solidarity,


PS…I’m trying to use my slow-cooker more. Could you share your favorite recipe with me in the comments below?

  3. Stone Soup Stew
    Peel off 3 out of five city schools and combine k-8 grade children. Add board of education with spines removed. Place in crock pot covered. Sprinkle in any old leftovers along with chicken stock fresh from Dover DOE. Let cook for years until students age out. This is a time honored recipe made in Wilmington for generations. Drain and serve on plate sprinkled with thyme, lots of thyme and no bread.
