So, a few years later now, and I have undergone a transformation. I am no longer afraid of fighting; I now see violence not as something bad in and of itself, but a means to an end... I also have been labeled as having an anger problem and have been forced to see the school counselor a few times. (Story for another time.)

Tuesday, November 03, 2009

By Denny Mather

First off, I'd like to make it really clear that I have total respect for most teachers. They have a hard job, raising your kids! It takes a lot of dedication, preparation and education. The No Child Left Behind fiasco made it even harder for teachers to do what they are supposed to: TEACH!! The system works for most people and I applaud the effort. More
