Perry’s Perspective: World Languages Make Global Citizens

"Je parle Français un petit peu" — I speak a little French. The French I remember from studying the language in fourth to ninth grades came in handy in August. That’s when my husband and our three teenagers spent nine days in England and France. I wanted us to take this trip because I believe the best education gives students a real shot at making their dreams come.

Teacher Helps Girls Take Flight

Eighth-grade English teacher Emerald Hall doesn't play. She expects her students to work hard, just like she does. I could tell that Hall, 44, meant business the moment my 14-year-old daughter told me about her. For example, to my daughter's surprise, Hall carefully read and graded each page of the jumbo-size packet of eighth-grade study material her students brought home during spring break. I can’t say that if.

Glenview Park, 10701 Dupont Ave., was filled with laughing children, joy-filled teenagers and.

Teen Student Interviews County Medical Examiner

For some time now, I’ve wanted to be a medical examiner. I guess all those crime scene investigation TV shows, like "Criminal Minds," got to me. When I told my mother about my latest career choice, she went digging through the Web for summer programs, internships — whatever. That is when she came across the High School Shadowing Program. The program is coordinated by the medical examiner.

Local drill team encourages focus and precision

As I approached the church doors at Mt. Sinai Baptist Church on Woodland Avenue, I heard deep thunders of unified stomps and shattering claps responding to a voice of strength guiding the bodily music. I had no idea where I was going initially, however, I just followed the sounds of ancient times — stomps and claps. When I finally turned the corner into the room, there.

Conference for Teens this Month

I remember my English teacher in high school putting down the text book with her head following suit. “Class, let’s chat for a minute,” she said somberly. At that very moment, she became a mother and not an English teacher. I witnessed probably the most emotionally charged and relevant lecture since Sept. 11, 2001. I took in every word she said to use if I ever was.

True Love Waits

I got started in the "True Love Waits" program when I went to one of their meetings a couple of months ago. My grandma started the "True Love Waits" program at my church, so I decided to go. I went thinking it was going to be boring, but I came out with a lot of information and a ring showing my commitment. Being in this workshop has.
