How are babies made?

We were eating dinner in a Chinese restaurant when my son asked me how babies were made. I swallowed my mouthful of sweet-and-sour chicken and answered him with an age-appropriate summary of how sperm and an egg join together and then grown inside a woman's womb to make a baby.…

Cover Reveal !

I am elated to reveal the cover of my soon to be published book.  This book chronicles the hurdles I had to endure to finally achieve success as a French and Spanish teacher. I hope my story will inspire all future educators from across the globe.

I believe in order to make a change for the better in public education, school districts across the United States should make a concerted effort to hire more educators of color.   I wrote “Saying Yes To My Life’s Calling: Breakthroughs in…

What's better: The ACT or SAT?

Think back to a memorable Saturday morning: You wake up early, somewhat refreshed from a dodgy night's sleep. You eat a decent breakfast, despite the fact that your stomach is roiling, and then you head off to school to take your SATs. Because there is nothing better than to spend four hours of your Saturday taking a test that you believe will decide your entire future.…

Back to School Organization

Back to #School #Organization from @MomTattles #B2S #DIY Monday morning, my Facebook feed was filled with proud parents as their children started their first day of school. By 2pm, those enthusiastic statuses looked a little uglier, grimmer, and much more stress filled. A new school year involves lots of moving parts, but what are some of the ways you and your family can make back-to-school an organized…

You too can beat the odds

Nowadays the Internet and television dictate the way we live. (Even if you are not an avid TV consumer, you will still know who the Kardashians are or what happened to John Kerry.) Some information is simply impossible to dodge. The key thing the media are telling us is that we should keep watching other people's lives to fill the voids in our own existence.

But the actual truth is quite different – you must be the person taking care of yourself and filling those empty spaces with…

Paying for your future philosophy major

In college I had a roommate that was a history major. I have nothing against history. History is important; we learn from our past; it's good to remember where you've come from. However, her goal in life was to get a job working within airport administration. If you are wondering how a degree in history relates to that goal, then you are not alone.…

The going rate for the tooth fairy

I made the mistake of Googling the phrase "tooth fairy rates" the other day and I was frightened. Depending on the area of the country, some children are receiving anywhere from $5 - $13 per tooth.…

Benefits of 1 on 1 Private Tutoring

The truth is that education as a notion has improved over the course of centuries drastically. We now understand the way learners’ brain works while in the process of learning, we understand the way in which it adopts new knowledge and we have an awareness of all the factors that influence that same process for better or for worse. Still, the modern educational system and all of its features are the way they are more because of necessity than any other practical reason. It is a known fact…

Most of the university students are using mobile device for studying, are you one of them?

Progress is inevitable. It is facts that today, most of us have phones with a greater capacity and capabilities than computers that sent the first man to the moon. Still, as in all things, it is not about what you have but how you use it that counts. Think of a typical teenage kid with a smartphone, it is true that that kid has an access to the internet, the most incredible data storage in the world, where he or she could find almost any information that they need, this is still probably not…

Endless battle: Children vs. Math

It is said that children, long before they start walking and talking, have already inherited and developed the mathematical gene within them, passed down from previous generations to the next. We are all born with the ability to logically inter-connect things and math is just a tool which enables us to carry out such complex functions. To put it plain, at around three years of age, we all naturally start to understand the simple notion that if you have one apple and you add another – you…

Sex Ed classes for children and parents

When I was nine, my Mother showed me a video in which a mother created a uterus and ovaries out of pancake batter to show her friend's daughter how menstruation worked. Some of you may be weirded out by this, others of you will have a vague memory of the video and rest of you will be shocked at how many hits come back when you Google "pancake batter menstruation video." (Evidently, lots of people have fond memories of that…

When to talk about pornography

When I was eight years old, my friend Annie told me about a movie she saw at home. She described scenes of a naked woman riding a horse and a man peeing in a woman's mouth. Many (many) years later I realized Annie had watched one of her father's porn videos. (Is this a Sorry, Mom moment? I don't know.)

Money talks

At about this time last year, I wanted to introduce my son to money. But it was too early for him, as evidenced by the fact he would still mix the play money in his cash register with the real thing. So, we took a step back and waited.…
