Love and logic

I wish I could use the love and logic phrase! The problem is that I don’t respect her. I don’t respect people who make outward judgments based upon race. I don’t respect people who believe they are...

Unfollowing teacher Instagrams

I recently made the decision to unfollow SPED teacher Instagram accounts. I started following because I wanted to get ideas.
