Chilling out @twinsailsbeer after a peaceful walk along Rocky Point. Trying their Bad Sally Praline Stout. I like it. I like it a lot.

This nails it. True engagement.
We have gotten student engagement all wrong. True student engagement is not about dancing on tables, entertaining, cotton candy and lollipops. True student engagement is the result of heart-to-heart conversations, lead by adults who refuse to quit on kids!
Teaching is a transitive verb: it takes a direct and an indirect object. We don’t teach “English”. We teach English TO students. #PSADay #sd40learns @ReadDRjwilhelm

I forgot to talk about the visitors we received on Saturday morning before we headed out for our day on the town. This was just too funny, in hindsight, to not mention. Caragh and I were both in full flight … Continue reading
It is up and at ’em for another day! Story is in the exersaucer…a device brought to us from an Afghani prison used to torture prisoners by preventing them from sleeping. It is similar in sound to someone gently taking … Continue reading
Not only do I get the pleasure of changing the pissy diapers off the twins, this morning I had the extra pleasure of scraping the dirty diapers off our driveway. For some reason the crows decided our garbage cans must … Continue reading
Some have commented that I seem, well, let’s say, “gruff” with the people around me and the customer service people I encounter. And yes, this is in response to the emails I received re my Sears portrait experience and my … Continue reading
Want to spoil a perfectly sunny Saturday? Schedule your twin daughters in for an early morning Halloween photo shoot at your local Sears photo studio. More a little later…after the ringing stops in my ears and I am able to … Continue reading
