Where Will You Be Pummeled?

Apr 14

Mike Tyson once said, “Everybody has a game plan until they get punched in the mouth“. Ain’t that the truth… Last week, I walked into the room while DP was in the midst of trainer boxer, Jimmy Williams.  In between breaths, I asked Jimmy how he was doing.  He gasped, look at me and said, “Man, […]Continue Reading

February Accomplishments

Mar 09

In my opinion, this quote is comforting.  It means that there is hope for people like us.  Not naturally coordinated.  Not built to squat. Long-limbed…somewhat lacking bodily awareness, therefore gymnastically challenged, not prone to be agile… If we are willing to work, we can still gain results; results, which are greater than those of the […]Continue Reading

No Victory Too Small

Mar 02

This is what the desk in the English Office at West Haven High School has looked like for the past week.  My boss has been on a Nacho Cheesier Dorito kick for the past month.  Well, I’m not sure how well y’all know me, but if you do, you know that I’ve been on a Dorito […]Continue Reading
