Seeing Beyond by William Klein

In hindsight, the year’s been a bright, blistering haze. School is over for the year, and I can breathe again.  I’m not alone. I’ve heard some interesting turns of phrases to articulate just how tired other teachers are.  “I feel like I just wrestled a monster.”  “I feel like I just ran a marathon -- underwater.” It shows … Continue reading Seeing Beyond by William Klein

The Power of Thought by William Klein

In his New York Times bestselling book “The Untethered Spirit,” Michael A.

He taught us the basic math … Continue reading The Sum Total Of Being by William Klein

Fantasy League Relationships by William Klein

There is prepping, studying, running through the rank-and-file players with sixth sense intuition of needs to acquiring players who can get as many points as possible for any given league. It’s a great escape, true. It inspires the mind to wonder and consider “What if” situations, if they’d … Continue reading Fantasy League Relationships by William Klein
