Praying For Boston

April 24, 2013

I’m praying for the people of Boston, especially those who were injured in the marathon and the families of the victims.

I hope too that we as a nation can start looking at the truth about our systems that allow guys like these to turn into terrorists and continue to get worse. The youngest brother went to a supposedly elite public school and yet no one seemed to think his views were worth mentioning.

That is a problem. So, I’m praying for Boston. But, I’m also hoping for a solution to the political correctness that is destroying our country. We’re rotting from the inside out.

Good New Website

September 9, 2010

I found a cool new website that deals with ‘new thought’ issues.

It’s the Courage to Imagine blog.


It Begins…

March 17, 2010

The world has another blog. I’ll pause for a moment so those two spam bots can go ahead and cheer. As a teacher who is in love with teaching kids, but perpetually frustrated by ‘education,’ this blog will be an opportunity for me to share my thoughts and experiences with a system that is in desperate need of reform– and not just in the way that you think.

When many observers think of education reform, they conjure images of statistics, objectives, and keeping up with the Soviets Indians. While I recognize the importance of hard objectives, my personal beef with the current educational climate is that it’s impersonal and in many ways inhumane. It helps those primed for success to succeed while doing very little for those students predestined to fail. It focuses on numbers, alleged objectives, and pedantic systems of discipline, instead of providing the motivation and skills for human beings to be successful people and contributors to society.

This blog will be a mixture of current events and policy discussion, spotlights on good and bad teachers, my own personal experiences with education, and even some of my fiction. Check out the About Me page for more info about my background, etc.
