I'm a very determined kind of individual. Sometimes my determination is misplaced and things get very ugly. But, sometimes my determination leads to laughter, deep thoughts, and words on paper.
I write everything. I'm not very good at filtering ... so you will see it all. Maybe there will be a little inspiration for someone else along the way. I hope so. My sister also likes to guest blog and I'm sure you will appreciate her wit and wisdom.

Teacher or Friend?
Today I attended the ACSI conference for Honduras schools... and though I was tired toward the end, I left with many new ideas for the classroom.
I'm not going to lie, it's been a struggle to find ways to be interactive, yet still make it through the psychology curriculum. The longer I am here, the more I'd rather be chatting with these students over coffee instead of staring over furrowed brows at their antics.
I'm no stranger to high school teachers - my mom has been "stuck there" for 20-some years. But, I certainly never realized the struggle between maintaining order and having fun.
If there are teachers out there can give tips, please share!
I'm sorry this post is so short, but I am literally struggling to keep my eyes open.
