This morning began as most school day mornings do—the kids and I shuffle half-blind with sleep down to the kitchen, where cereal is chosen and milk is poured and requests for lunch are made.

It is the 13th anniversary of 9/11 and here’s a sobering thought for you: with the exception of a handful of 8th-graders, none of our students were born when September 11th happened. And for those few 8th-graders who were, they would have been just infants themselves, with no recollection of…

I don’t know what it is about the summertime that makes me nostalgic. But this is the time of year when I am most reflective and introspective. I suppose it’s because so many of my childhood memories involve searching for perfect sea glass and exploring the rocky outcroppings that separated the private beaches from the … Continue reading
