Lakawanna

Pennsylvania has some very strange town names. When we used to travel through PA, one of the town we passed was Lackawanna. (I spelled it incorrectly on purpose, I know nothing about the town and don’t mean any offense to those who live there.) We often passed the sign for Lackawanna College. We would tease […]

Not showing up

I have written on the topic of promise, agreements, commitments before, but I still find all too often that people think nothing of just not showing up for something they said they’d show up for. I find it very frustrating. Posting this as a reminder to keep your commitments (and if you don’t think you […]

Everyone Starts at the Beginning

Remember learning how to ride a bike, or roller skate, or swim? Maybe for you it was learning to write your numbers and letters, or type on a keypad, or use a smart phone. We could even take it to the very basics of learning to walk and talk, we all had to do that. […]

It’s all in the perspective

What do you see when you look at this picture. A student handed this to me and asked me to cut it out for him. Shortly after, another student asked if he could have a mustache, too. I was surprised at the question. I had actually thought this was angel’s wings. Interesting. When I asked […]

Being Resilient

Resilient, resilience, resiliency are all pretty popular catch words these days. There have been lots of studies done on what causes one person to be more resilient than another, and many articles written about how to build your personal resilience.
