Morning Announcements – A Prequel

A few days ago I shared a post about experiencing the morning announcements in a school where I recently worked. And it got me thinking about the morning announcements that we heard each morning in high school. During my freshman year at Patrick Henry, there was this guy who did the announcements every day.

I mean meeting someone I've only known through blogging for the first time. Ever. In that post, I mentioned how I'd made … Continue reading My Blogging Journey
