It has been awhile since I’ve had a chance to update the blog. In part because I have been on Summer vacation and I needed a mental break. The other reason is because I’ve been in hot pursuit of a new teaching and coaching gig. I’ve received some great offers but unfortunately those coaching positions didContinue reading “From the Holler!”
It has been awhile since I’ve been able to update this blog. In all honestly, I’ve been so busy the past couple of weeks I haven’t given the ol’ blog much thought at all.

For the past three weeks I have acted in an interim head coach capacity, holding things together until administration found a replacement. That replacement was hiredContinue reading “From the Holler!”
Crunch time! I’ve been working my students to the bone, preparing them for the End Of Course Tests on Monday and Tuesday next week. I’ve also been bribing them with candy.
