Mike Crowley is Middle School principal and Assistant Director at The International School of Brussels, Belgium. This blog shares some personal reflections on learning with a particular focus on the maelstrom of change in education, school culture, and cultural life in general.

While the views expressed here are inevitably informed by my daily work and life, they are not intended to reflect the views of my employers, nor do I believe that a personal blog is an appropriate place to debate the internal, dynamic of my own school (an amazing place to work and learn). Should I make reference to my own work, it will be as a celebration of our efforts, not a critique. These are simply the opinions of someone enjoying the dizzying journey and attempting to make some sense of broader trends and challenges for myself in a reflective manner.
