  • Take advantage of good weather while it lasts

    Hot weather and I usually do not mix.

    As a teenager, my parents took us on a family vacation to Florida to visit some relatives.

    It was blistering hot all day at the beach. Not being an ocean person, the sun simply glared on me the entire afternoon.

    When it was time for lunch, I started feeling ill at Denny’s.

    The group was sitting at a half-circle booth table with lucky me in the middle, which meant either half of the people had to get up to let me out or I had to crawl underneath the table.

    Times are difficult right now in the schools. Money is tight and some districts are having to choose to drop programs and let teachers go due to budget constraints. This is where we must consider carefully the best interests of the students, all students, before we decide to restructure the  curriculum and eliminate pieces of a child’s education.
