A choice to BE? An interview for 2019

Each year, the school that I work at puts up a Mitten Tree for the teachers and families as a way to support the organization WINGS (Women In Need Growing Stronger). As their website states, “WINGS provides a pathway to independence for adults and children who are escaping from domestic violence and abuse.” I interviewed Pam Adams,... Read more »

This is a busy time of year for everyone with the holidays approaching as well as the end of another year, but it is also the time for setting goals and making resolutions. How do I decide what they are? What do I focus on in this busy holiday season? I don’t think there are... Read more »
