    Every since a very young age, I'll I've ever known is football, more importantly Minnesota Vikings football. My dad is maybe the biggest fan there is, every Sunday, Monday or Thursday game, he's watching. Always cheering or yelling. That’s a big one, he yells like the referees can hear him. I could never have friends over on Sundays because of the yelling. Even though football has been around me for so long I never really understood the game. I tried multiple times to understand, but it just wasn’t matching up in my brain.

The first place in the Mall of America that I would approach would be…

    Early in that game Aaron Rodgers (the quarterback for the Packers) threw a touchdown pass to future Hall of Fame receiver, Donald Driver (Chris Chase). Seconds after the touchdown, Donald Driver ran to the fans and did the signature Lambeau Leap. He looked almost identical to LeRoy Butler in 1993. The crowd was already screaming as loud as they could, but when Donald Driver converted the Lambeau Leap successfully, the stadium absolutely erupted. Later in the third quarter, Christian Ponder…

    Knowing the impact and the growth that this has had on me, it is nice to see the California Teachers Association: Institute for Teaching (CTAIFT) encouraging the use of this technique not only for their students but also for aiding their teachers to be better. While the San Diego Region IV Think Tank in its final draft of Strength Not Weakness for 2013-2014 focuses its attention on Principals relationship with his/her teachers. (see link to site at the end), there is now a movement by teachers…

I was fortunate enough to have two loving grandparents to raise me. My immediate family did not speak English too well so I was taught Cantonese and Vietnamese shortly…
