A caveat

I used to guide printing n and m by saying "a line down, up and make a hump." One first grader indicated his understanding of "hump" with certain hand movements. I immediately changed to "make a...

All the pictures I've seen show face masks worn with the face shield. The shield is an extra bit of protection.

religious schools+Supreme Court

I find it very un-Christian that someone can be fired for needing breast cancer treatment or declining to retire when the principal suggests it and the Supreme Court says it's just fine. Let's hope...
