“I already won the lottery. I was born in the U-S of A baby.” – Creed Bratton (My fellow The Office fans will recognize this one). I post this quote from The Office every year on the 4th of July. I post it because I love this country. Now, just because I believe America is […]
Think back to what you learned about the Civil Rights Movement. My bet is that you learned that it started in the 1950s when Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat on the bus. I mean, why wouldn’t she? She was a tired old lady who was trying to get home from work. Then […]
A few weeks ago, I posted on Facebook asking people to tell me topics they’d like me to write about. One of my friends responded with Juneteenth. I immediately thought, “ooof, I know what it is, but I don’t know much about it.” As someone who has always been interested in black history and issues […]
“Finally!” I said to myself as I walked up to the counter. This was my third time at the DMV to get a Tennessee license. Yup, you read that right. THIRD. I try to stay positive most of the time, but I couldn’t help thinking, “no wonder everyone hates the DMV.” Long story short, I […]
Do you believe in magic? Well, the Electoral College sure does. It’s a magic number, and it’s 270. That’s the number you’ll see sprawled across the top of all the news channels on election day. It’s the number of electoral votes a candidate needs to win the presidential election. So I figured I’ll explain the […]
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 […]
Imagine… it’s the middle of July, and one of those back to school commercials comes on tv. The first thing that pops into your head is “WTF, it’s not even August yet. Why are they showing back-to-school commercials?! Summer vacation just started. We JUST got out of school.” Welp, I finally know the reason. There […]
Teaching is one of those careers where everything thinks they’re an expert. Hey, we’ve all been to school, we know all about education and have an opinion about it. All teachers have been there. You know, when you tell someone you’re a teacher, and they respond with something cliché like, “Wow, I could never do […]
Is everyone about to pull their hair out with this whole remote learning thing, or is it just me? You are? That’s what I thought. My district didn’t start any real remote learning until about two weeks ago. When they first unveiled out the new remote learning strategy, I was like, “wait a minute. We’ve […]
I’ve got to admit; I’m pretty good at time management. I haven’t always been great at it, so I created three steps for effective management. 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. […]
