A blog from the past: We Are On A Special Kind of Team

I've been looking back at my writing. Some of it's drivel, but some of it hits messages that I try to talk to my students about in class. This one is five years old (damn) but the message is one... Continue Reading →

#SOL19 – A Week Off

I've not written in a week. #sowhat For some, that's not a big deal. For some, it's nothing to worry about. I'm worried. Why? Because I need to write. I need to outlet. I need the words on the page. I... Continue Reading →

#SOL19 – Day 31 – A Reflection of Writing

Well, we did, didn't we!?! 31 days of writing. 31 days of noticing the little things. 31 days of noticing emotions. 31 days of being in the moment. #31daysofcomplainingfrommystudents As I looked back at the past three years of "Day 31"... Continue Reading →

#SOL19 – Day 14 – Nails on a Chalkboard

I've been a pretty good boy these last 13 days. My blogs, for the most part, have been upbeat, positive, and that's how I'm trying to keep myself. #nottoday Yesterday, my love of middle school was deep and wide like the... Continue Reading →

SOL#19 – Day 12 – 25 Years

Look at these fresh faces kids, starting their lives out together, 25 years ago today. We'd dated from April of our freshman year in the college (1990), and in February of 1993, got engaged. My mother in law was NOT... Continue Reading →

Where’s My Mojo? #SOL19

I'm feeling right now like the Iowa men's basketball team. They have a decent record of 21 wins and 7 losses. They have a winning record in the month of February, something not done for a number of years. They've... Continue Reading →
