Keeping the Culture Alive Among Kids Through Art Theater Schools

Inoculating children with the right culture and traditions is the only way to ensure that they are passed from one generation to the next and kept alive. Hobbies are an excellent tool to help children thrive in the knowledge of their heritage.

The love for art and theater is shared by those who have a passion for it. They are able to cross the line between those who can teach and those who can’t. Instilling a passion for…

"T - 2": Preparing for the Extra Duties

At "T minus 2", I begin sifting through the calendars and emails about upcoming meetings, lunch duty schedules, curriculum planning updates, and more.



As I enter dates into my plan book and Google calendar, I remember the year that I was a substitute teacher. I arrived at 7:30 and left at 3:30 with all papers graded, plans for the next day solidified, and specific anecdotal notes on the progress of each child. I often wondered, Why is it that, when I teach full time, I stay until… Continue

21 Touches

We depend upon the fine products, services and information that we obtain from reputable vendors and manufacturers -- we depend upon them for the success of our organizations. Then why is it that so many encounters with sales reps leave us feeling, well, cheap?

This week, Joe Schuch follows up Anita's cheeky dance story (about how salesmen stopped phoning her once they discovered she had no…

About Chinese New Year and Chinese Mothers

Happy Chinese New Year! The Chinese use the lunar calendar in addition to the solar calendar. According to the lunar calendar, the new year this year was on Feb. 3, which is the Year of the Rabbit. The twelve animals in the Chinese zodiac cycle every 12 years. Because every month in the lunar calendar has 30 days, and there are no months with 31 days, every 4 years the lunar calendar is corrected by repeating a month.

The Chinese keep track of their birthdays using…

Thoughts about education

We are well into the new school year by now. In my family, we have settled into a routine of driving to schools and then driving to sports after school. With three kids in three different schools and three different schedules, driving has been really hectic (no school bus system where we live). However, we believe it is important for our kids to have a balanced set of activities, that combines academics with sports and other things.

All Children Can Learn!

I just returned from the Leadership Alabama Education retreat. It was held in Mobile and began on Thursday afternoon. It concluded today (Saturday at noon). The highlight of the retreat for many was the visit to George Hall Elementary School. George Hall's students come from generational poverty. But, that doesn't hold them back. In fact, the vast majority of George Hall students are performing academically at the highest levels. According to Jim Williams, Executive Director of the Public… Continue

A Visit with the Head Master of the Guiyang Experimental High School #3, China

After the tours, we were able to visit with the head master of the school. She shared much information about the students and the building. The students in the school come from the Guizhou province. The teachers are very good, and she said that the “students are lively.” This is an experimental school because it is a relatively new boarding school funded in 2004. As a result, they are still in the experimental process of implementing the school. Only five teachers live here after 9 o’clock to… Continue
