I’m Bradley Hardin. I want to be an excellent teacher, but I want to be an even better Dad and husband. I teach Chemistry and Earth and Space science at a relatively small school out in West Texas. I’ve been teaching for 6 years but have realized that my teaching has not been as effective as it could be. Modeling and standards based grading (SBG) seem to be what I have been looking for, and now I’m ready to try them out.
