I’m Nick Dalbey. I’m a great books instructor for middle school and high school students  at the The Saint Constantine School. Combine my teaching interests with my interest in literature, philosophy, and theology, and you have a good idea of what you’ll find in many of my blog posts.

Right now, this site serves two purposes:

First, it’s an attempt to gather my digital presence into one spot. I’ve slowly extracted myself from every form of social media, and hope to establish a more stable digital home here.

Second, the site functions as a common place notebook. I often write short posts that feature an extended quotation from an article or book I’ve read, sometimes followed by my own commentary. I’ll also write longer essay-like posts. The point is to create a network of my reading habits and patterns of thought through the use of “categories” and “tags.” Most of this I’ll use as a resource for teaching.

Thanks for stopping by!
