There is something about being vulnerable together that allows us to share a bond based on trust. Trust. It is the key component that a pitcher needs with her catcher.

By conferencing with students I am able to set individualized goals essentially differentiating…

As I planted my left leg into the turf, my quad and patellar tendon worked together and pulled in opposite directions, popping my kneecap horizontally right down the middle.

As I progressed in school, I was always told that I could not make it and that I was weak. Girls do not have that much value in my society; therefore, I was told I had no power and I could not achieve what I sought. I went to a predominately male school. My school had ample opportunities for the majority of the students, but not for me since I am a girl. I…
