God Will See.
Last year, I gave my then-sixth grade students a test on verbs. Admittedly, this is harder than it sounds, as this unit covers everything from transitive and intransitive verbs to progressive forms to perfect tenses and everything in between. The results we...

Persuasion.
It is no secret that I love Jane Austen . I love her, and I love all of her novels. Most people would probably name Pride and Prejudice as their favorite of the Austens. However, I'm not able to do that. The best I've been able to do thus far is put the boo...

On Saturday night I had the pleasure and privilege of watching my dear friend Story star as Annie Sullivan in Marshall University Theatre's production of "The Miracle Worker." I have seen all of the shows Story has been in (and have the autographed programs...

How are You?
Do you ever feel like you just want to give everyone a hug? Maybe sit down with them as an individual and just listen to them? This was not the blog post I was planning to write tonight. I sat down to write about change -- and that post is coming -- but as ...

Self-Help ... Books: Summer 2017 Edition
If Summer 2016 was The Summer We Read Austen (as if my whole life is not Austen), then Summer 2017 would most accurately be called More Alive and Less Lonely . Yes, I stole this title from a book of essays by Jonathan Lethem (more on this book at the end of...
