  • A conversation with my students. (NaBloPoMo Day 11)

    This is how I explained to my students on why you should give any new president a chance to prove themselves, and to see what they can do. We were discussing how we might not like who was elected, but that we had to respect the office and why we should hope that whoever is…

  • The Day After (NaBloPoMo Day 9)

    It’s a new day and we can make it what we want. Last night’s election has caused shock waves across the world (including my own house) but it up to us to change the status quo, for us to flip the script and for us to change the direction of our country. One man or…

  • Election Night 2016

    I’m going to edit photos and try not to panic.   A more coherent post tomorrow.

  • Sneaking this one in

    Getting this post in with 13 minutes to spare.  Long day at work then headed to Orlando to the TSA Leadership Conference with 28 teenagers.  Within five minutes of getting their keys, one entire room of boys lost all four keys. I can’t make this up.  The drive up was unusually long and we are…

  • NaBloPoMo What the Heck?

    As it appears that I’m going months between posts, I’m am going to participate in National Blog Posting Month, otherwise known as NaBloPoMo. It’s a sister event to National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWrMo). As there is no way that I’m going to write an entire this month, I’m going to try and write a blog…
