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…Continue

About a week ago I was driving over the George Washington Bridge. Traffic slowed for a few seconds and I was able to look at the steel girders, beams, rivets, and thick wires that held the bridge together. My eyes followed the construction upwards and my mind put me somewhere out there about 100 feet up over the Hudson.
I could see the sparkling…Continue

Growing up my mother, sister and I were true moviegoers. Every Saturday, we were at the movies and to this day I watch a lot of movies, but not at the theaters as much. Well, I go to the movies, but it’s generally to watch a kids flick. You know how it goes, you have kids and things change. Thankfully, there is the Library(my #1 source), pay per view, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Apple TV and so many other outlets that make movies available quickly.
One of my favorite movies is …Continue

It's not surprising to see kids speak their mind, ask questions until convinced and have a say in everything that's happening around. We all agree technology rules the world today and kids being so smartly adapting to it is no wonder a boon in a true sense.

Kids become not what we want them to but what we are to them. It won't be wrong to say that kids in most cases are just the mirror image of their parents. From the time they are born till the age of six, they have a great sense of observation and their ability to imitate helps them learn and adapt to the world.…Continue

It was a flawless morning, everything had gone perfectly according to plan and my daughter was in a fabulous mood - we dressed alike and enjoying our mother-daughter primping - then reality reached out through one call and gave me a tremendous slap to the face.
You see, I knew he would die one day and though I had wished for it, I never imagined it would be so quick or unexpected. Not that death is normally something we plan for but I admit I thought…
