Foundations

As I walked past the fence surrounding the construction zone outside of the elementary school where I spend part of my time each week I noticed they were working to dig the holes for laying the new foundation today.

Hard Work and Time

“Nothing will work unless you do.” “All great achievements require time.” Both of these quotes are by poet and writer Maya Angelou.

Noticing Differences

For those of you who do not know, I recently had knee surgery and have been out of commission for a couple of weeks so I apologize for my lack of blogs. I have been slowly making my way back to working full time in my special education classroom with the use of a wheelchair; …
