A global pandemic affected communities in every corner of the globe, and many people found they had much more time on their hands due to stay-at-home restrictions. That extra free time may have opened up the opportunity to re-engage with old hobbies or start entirely new ones. Such endeavors may have resulted in items that can make ideal handmade holiday gifts.
While packing bags and backpacks for school, there’s one essential that may be overlooked: Children’s self-esteem. Although many children may feel confident and selfassured at home, they can feel differently in the classroom.

Baseball fans likely know its familiar refrain by heart, and even non-fans can probably identify it the moment it begins playing. “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” has long been part of the fabric of American culture, but even the most ardent fans of America’s pastime may be surprised to learn just how long the song has been around. According to the Library of Congress, the United States Copyright Office first received two copies of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” on May 2, 1908. The song has proven so influential and popular over the years that legendary broadcaster and journalist Walter Winchell once asserted that it embodied the very popularity of the sport by painting the ballpark as an “island of innocent excitement in a world of wild despair.” The song is still routinely played at ballparks across the country, and perhaps no park has become more synonymous with the song than Wrigley Field, home of the Chicago Cubs. During the seventh inning stretch of each game at Wrigley, fans are led by a celebrity and join in singing the song. That nightly sing-along is widely considered one of the most festive traditions in North American professional sports.

Lately, I’ve become acutely aware of the clarity in my life. This clarity was earned with all that I had and all that I am. I know I am not alone. I know our numbers are too great to count.
I’m warning you beforehand, what I’m about to say is going to seem utterly ridiculous: My mother once told me that I could conquer the world if I ate a decent breakfast. The whole world. All because of breakfast.
The whirr of wings when you accidentally flush a bird from its hiding place can startle you and give you pause. The same can be said about watching a student “get it” and understand what the teacher is teaching. The art of teaching is tightly linked to seeing the lightbulb moments when students make a new connection.
