Believe it or not, every once in a while, I run out of things to say.  I run out of things to write about.  I feel like I've been standing on certain soap boxes for so long, there just isn't anything left to say. There's nothing new, and I feel that people are tired of hearing me say the same things over and over again.

This article orignally appeared in The Herald-News, September 2014.Though students have been in school for over two months, I've only recently returned to the classroom.  It does take some time to get readjusted to teaching, just as our students take time to get back into the routine of class, homework, sports practices and games.

The summer is coming to a close.  In the coming weeks, school buses will take to the roads, transporting our bundles of joy to the halls of learning.  Or, something like that. If you remember, my summers at the Women's Care Center are largely centered around the Children's Attitude Motivation Program (CAMP).

A big part of the Edge is to encouraging students to make healthy relationship choices now because today’s choices will affect tomorrow’s relationships. As we talk about marriage in the classroom, most of my students indicate they want to be married in the future.

My word! It has certainly been a long time since I’ve penned something personally.  Life in and out of the office is a little crazy right now. It’s hard for me to believe that the end of the school year is just around the corner.  Time, slow down!

Last week, we finished up our time at Rhea County High School.  I have to admit, I’m a little partial to RCHS. After all, it is my alma mater (Let’s Go Eagles!). And it is here in the county that the Women’s Care Center main office calls home.  In addition, we graciously receive two weeks to spend with the students, which allows for some great instruction time and some casual conversations.

I know I talk about media frequently.  And sometimes, I feel like people are probably tired of hearing about it, especially from me.  However, I can’t let this one slide by. A few weeks ago, I tuned in to Fox one Thursday night.  I’m not much of a primetime TV viewer (unless it’s sports).

A few weeks ago, my husband and I were taking a walk. And, by “taking a walk,” I mean we had just finished jogging and I was gasping for air while my husband nonchalantly carried on a conversation with our three-year-old daughter. As we walked past the jail, my very observant and curious daughter noticed the steel plates over the windows and asked,” Daddy, what is that place?

Just a few weeks ago, I wrote about the new MTV show Buckwild.  I wrote about the bad choices that are highlighted throughout the show. And, about the seeming lack of consequences. Earlier this month, the carefree façade came crashing down. On April 1st, after being reported missing, Buckwild breakout star Shain Gandee was found dead.
