The sun never sets on KD sisterhood
Just recently I attended a weekend retreat with sisters of the Delta Eta chapter of Kappa Delta . There were some "old" sisters I remembered and some sisters who pledged after I had graduated from USF. I was there at the behest and encouragement of my soror...

Game of Thrones: A Perspective
My most important disclaimer: I've not read the books. I started to but, quite honestly, it's a big series and I really didn't want to be disappointed if I loved the books and the show didn't emphasize whatever I thought was important. I've been following t...

The Good Wife and democracy in America
In Episode 19 of The Good Wife , Alicia Florrick thought she had won the election for State's Attorney. Whatever. I didn't like that plot line and wondered about the trajectory of the show if she actually was in the SA's office, but I was not expecting Seas...

Be so good
It's been making the Facebook rounds. Yes, I shared it, but with stated mixed emotions. I like the concept that when someone is really good at something it's hard to ignore that skill or talent or ability. I don't like the idea of striving to be really good...

Getting unstuck
Writing can be hard. And for high school and college students, the relentless blankness of the page or screen infuriate and frustrate or lead to downright panic. Help is on the way. As is often my wont, I have to start some place else first which often make...

Professional development is more than compliance
We know professional development is important. We know that professional development is often perceived as a colossal waste of time. We also know that most professional development is "sit and get" and/or designed to try to introduce a general topic for all...

Slippery Slope from Helping to Enabling
At what point does helping become enabling? I like to help. Most of the time. When it comes to help people manage their technology, especially when they're trying to set up for a presentation, I'm more than willing to try to help them troubleshoot. There ar...

It's that time of year
It's that time of year. Prom. Graduation. Parents are figuring out summer plans to keep students busy. Graduating seniors are thinking about a last blast of summer before they go off to college, or trying to find jobs to help pay for college, or working sum...

The power of the shush
I'm being facetious. I've been sitting in an office area adjacent to a school library for most of the morning and, for most of the morning, I've heard people "ssshhh" others. What's funny to me is that the ssshhh-ing is often louder than the murmuring of th...

Actual learning cannot be measured by a list or a log
