World Smile Day

World Smile Day

Last Friday, October 5th was World Smile Day. According to worldsmileday.com, the idea for this day came from Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts.

Teacher Appreciation Week

This is Teacher Appreciation Week. A week to focus on expressing gratitude to teachers who excel at their jobs. I am married to a teacher, so I have witnessed how much time and energy goes into it each day (and night!) On any given day, the title of “Teacher” could be replaced with “Mentor” or...
