I’m currently going back to college to finish my teaching degree. This means that I’m a poor college student! So I will be adding some items occasionally that can earn me a small amount of money. Making money is not the main purpose of this site, nor will I overwhelm the content with selling items. […]

I read this story as a kid. I liked it okay, but it wasn’t my favorite. Imagine my surprise, then, when this story begins surfacing in my mind as an adult. Every once in awhile, I will get a visual image of the sun or the wind in their attempts to remove the man’s coat.

Whenever this story comes to mind, I’m wondering one thing: Am I the Wind or the Sun? In trying to make a difference, am I using brute force to bring about change or am I creating an environment where the person chooses to change?

I hope to be like the Sun by helping students want to change for themselves.
