The 7 Taboo Topics

Here’s a few major taboo topics and how I feel about them. I think we should all be willing to talk about things like this in a civil manner. Feel free to disagree and state your own opinion. I’d love to hear it and I promise I won’t bite your head off for giving it.

1: God.
After many years of learning about the different religions and versions of them, I have come to a conclusion (this coming from a man who was music director at a Baptist church for 7 years from the age of 14): Continue reading “The 7 Taboo Topics”

Accept Me As I Am

I’ve been “looking for love” since I was 8-years-old. Don’t believe me? When my mom passed away I found the following poem I wrote when I was 8-years-old still in her wallet: Love is…

See? Told you. So throughout my searching, I always tried to conform to what the girl I liked wanted me to be. “Lose a couple of pounds and I’ll be your girlfriend.” That was an odd one now that I think about it.

Guess what Continue reading “Accept Me As I Am”

6 Qualities of an Effective School

1. Quality administration and staff – It irritates me tremendously to see teachers and administrators that don’t want to be at school. Teaching is one of those jobs where if you don’t love it, you really need to stop. Lack of love for the job translates into the classroom. Students can sense a lack of enthusiasm from the teachers. The teachers that students love are always the teachers that love their jobs. That’s a fact. I also do not agree with passing over prospective teachers just because they don’t add enough points for NCLB. Teachers need to be chosen based on their qualities and not their quantities (of certificates). If a teacher wants to be a teacher, they can always learn more about teaching. Experience and PD will take care of that. But if the teacher
