It felt like someone punched me in the gut. Anger grew inside of me, and the blood in my arms tingled with rage. Thank God that the student wasn’t near me when I read the comment. I would have lost my damn mind. But being the level-headed (ha!) adult that I am, I waited a […]
Warning, this isn’t like my usual upbeat and positive posts. I’m gettin’ real. And hey. I might just keep on keepin’ in real. A note: when I’m mentioning white people, I am talking about the racist white people of the time I am discussing. Now that that’s out of the way… Recently I saw a […]

Many of the strategies come from ten years working for a direct sales company. That experience taught me strategies and steps to ensure that I’m more efficient with my time. […]
If you’re like me, it’s been challenging to keep busy and stay sane while in self-quarantine. You’re probably about ready to pull your hair out from being cooped up for three weeks (in all seriousness, I have considered cutting my hair because I can’t see a hairdresser right now). You may be working from home, […]
So February is over, and you did an excellent job teaching Black History for 28 days, but you wonder to teach Black History all year?? Don’t get me wrong, I think Black History Month is essential.
