About: Matthew Spearman

Hello. I'm Matthew Spearman. I'm a special education teacher in a small K-12 public school in Northern Minnesota. I'm taking a year sabbatical from that work to explore other interests including writing, blogging, and other ways to teach. I have three young children under age four (yes, another reason for needing a sabbatical). As you may tell from some of my political writing, I am an unabashed liberal and life-long democrat. gemini.tao is my blog. It covers many topics including politics, parenting, surviving suicide (my 14 year-old son completed suicide in 2004), creative writing, literature, and a host of other issues. Readers are welcome.
