This August, I began my 19th year as a public school educator in the field of American history and government. The message I convey to my students each year is that they can make an impact in the world that they live in. When they enter my classroom, they see the following statements on my back wall: Use Your Voice, Take A Stand, Make A Difference.
Banner Health facilities in the East Valley have begun serving veterans who might have to wait for service at their local Veterans Affairs clinic. Run through the Welcome Veterans Project, the program has veterans receiving services from area Banner facilities in lieu of receiving it from a VA clinic. The Phoenix VA clinic has received criticism for extended wait times for service due in part to a lack of doctors, as well as accusations those wait times have led to deaths.
Are you in pain? Do you feel like you have tried everything and the pain is still there? Did you know that our nervous system remembers trauma from injury? We walk around unaware of bracing patterns everyday. It’s that bracing and gripping feeling when you are getting out of bed in the morning, the clenching when getting out of the chair because your back hurts, or the cautiousness when using your arms because your shoulder hurts. The body remembers and your mind creates a story of the pain and the worst outcome possible. Then your pain becomes a habit, ruling your daily routine. This impacts your self-care, work life, and home life.

Words are powerful creatures. Sometimes sleek and smooth, sometimes coarse and rough. Once they’re out there, we can’t snatch them back, tame them, or change them. Of course, not all words are hurtful or intended to wound. But words that hurt can kill us slowly and painfully, like a torturer. They cut away at our confidence, they eat up our self-esteem. While we might be able to maintain outward façade of normality, we inwardly shrivel and die. In those hidden depths, we can look and feel like “The Scream,” by Edvard Munch.
I got the chance recently to chat with Thomas Carter, director of “When the Game Stands Tall.”

It’s hard to think of many actors from the past few decades who were one of a kind, but Robin Williams was truly a performing force unlike anything that’s ever existed. No one will ever be able to fill his now sadly empty shoes. The fact that his life was taken in such a lonely, horrific fashion after a long struggle with depression only makes this loss more tragic. For now, however, let’s focus on how Williams lived as apposed to how he died. What a life he lived and what an unparalleled career full of laughs, inspiration, and flubber he’s left behind. In honor of this great talent, here are my five personal choices for his best performances in film.

Teaching Chinese can be forced or presented in an unnatural way. We found a method of teaching behaviors, building upon a child’s natural curiosity, using hands on materials, teaching through multiple senses, and other fantastic philosophies in a pedagogy called Montessori.

So Ling obtained a job at an International Montessori School in Hong Kong and we packed our bags and moved to Hong Kong.
