My name is Caleb, and I teach high school English just outside of Kansas City. This blog used to be called “a big cup of books.” Read here about the ideas behind the change and the direction of this blog currently.

Some things about me: I like coffee, literature (reading and writing), the great outdoors, and learning new cultures (sometimes abroad and sometimes in my home country). My beautiful wife is from El Salvador. Por lo tanto yo hablo un poco español.

I follow Jesus.

That statement often carries a lot of baggage today. However, I try to approach this blog and the world around me through the lens of love and critical thinking rather than biased assumptions and inaccessible dialogue. I’m just a ragamuffin anyway. I need grace too.
