Beautifully written, John. There is something special about kindergarten teachers. They are definitely ninjas. Still to this day, every time we spot one of Evelyn's teachers from kindergarten, she gets excited. I still love hearing, "Daddy, look! There's "Miss" Walker!" or "Daddy! It's "Miss" Brown!" Evelyn loves school, and we owe that completely to the brilliance, tenacity, and passion of those fine ladies.   
To Whom It May Concern: So I don't really know you yet but let me just say ahead of time that I'm terrified. It was the same way with my older two kids. I'm worried about whether my daughter will make friends and whether or not she will feel like she belongs. She can shy.

Looks like another great keynote, John. Thanks for sharing the slides. I hope everything goes well.
So, I'm doing my first keynote of the summer and I figured I would put the slide deck here for attendees to view or download. I also figured it would be a chance for blog readers to get a peak into the visual style of my slide decks. If you're interested in having me talk about creativity and ...

Studying can be a real pain in the brain! You know it. We know it. There’s no denying it. However, it absolutely does not have to be a pain at all and we are

You can help me help St. Jude by supporting my efforts as a St. Jude Hero. http://bit.ly/pgc4stjude
 
Damien loves old school cartoons like Scooby-Doo and He-Man. He's inquisitive and outgoing. His parents are grateful they'll never receive a bill from St. Jude. "We can focus on Damien,” his mom said. “We can focus on making memories and having a support system, and not worrying about how to pay for our hospital bills.” See how your support helps: http://bit.ly/1KZO2NN

This. Is. Awesome. 
Here's the transcript of the video: It was about eight years ago when the alarm woke me up at 3 in the morning. Except, it wasn't an alarm. It was a newborn baby and I couldn't calm him down. I remember turning to the computer and realizing that I still needed to finish an assignment for my ...
