Friday Thoughts: Trust

Today in class, we had a real life experience with trust. #uhoh We have impulsive boys. I know, shocking, right (we also have impulsive girls, so let it be🙂)? As with almost every year, I look at my class list,... Continue Reading →

#SOLC19 Day 3: Slow Sundays

Long Time, No Write #SOL18

Yo, blog! Sup?? Long time, no write here! I've neglected you and my 17 readers, and for that I do apologize. But yet, a hiatus (wow, finally had a chance to use that word!) was needed. As we looked through... Continue Reading →
