       I just erased a whole post that I had written.      It was funny. At least, I thought it was.  But, I couldn't bring it around to say what I wanted it to.  I was working on it and working on it, and I couldn't get past the typical "girls, don't feel pressured by the media to look a certain way.

  So, what about this issue of cohabitation?  Why is it a bad idea?  Does a piece of paper or a ceremony really make that much of a difference?

I attended Rhea County High School. I'm a Rhea County Golden Eagle. And when I go back to teach there and tell the students that I've been where they are, I mean it. Well, except for the last time I was there. We didn't have our own classroom, so we met in the boys locker room.

  This newsletter was extremely difficult for me to write. As I started to compile some recent articles that pertain to this line of work, I felt it was time for another blog post. An opportunity for you to hear from one of us.  What would be the topic of discussion?

by Taylor Hollingsworth          In my final weeks as part of the Edge at the Women’s Care Center, I continue to hear the same question again and again-- “will you miss it?” After a 2 year career of being lovingly referred to as the “sex guy” by so many adoring youth throughout Rhea County and it’s surrounding areas, it’s very difficult to articulate all the things I want to say in response to that question.

By Joel Trigger, Educator Last night we went to a basketball game at Spring City middle school. We spent three weeks there earlier this year teaching 6th – 8th grade. We had a ton of fun getting to know the students outside class by eating with them during lunch and playing dodge ball with them in the gym in between classes.

by Joel Trigger, Educator     When we go into schools to talk to students about sex, we often have to start out by breaking some misconceptions. Usually they expect that we are some kind of anti-sex campaign that is going to come in and tell them that they aren’t allowed to have any fun and that they need to move up on a mountain and never think about the opposite sex or their body parts will start falling off.
