Looking Forward. . . A Personal Reflection

Posted on June 27, 2011 at 10:50pm 0 Comments

In the winter of the current school year, I found myself looking forward . . . and I realized that I was in the enviable position of choosing where I wanted to live.  My husband’s job was no longer tied to a specific geographic location – and my kids were making decisions about where they wanted to be. . . based on post-secondary education and career opportunities.  The world was my oyster. . .

 

I am a principled person, and so I began to think about what I wanted – really…

If you don't stand for something. . .

This I believe. . . with an attempt at order. . . but none are negotiable -

 

10.  Working with kids is a privilege.

The privilege of working with kids is just that – a privilege.  If your heart isn’t in it, you aren’t going to be effective and could probably make a better contribution elsewhere.  If your heart is in it, you are so needed – and you can make the world a better place.

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
