Bring a glass, a bottle of water, spoon and a packet of Kool aid to the Deloitte interview. While staring interviewer straight in the face (make sure not to look at any of the above mentioned items while doing the following), pour water from water bottle into glass. Tear packet of Kool aid mix open (aggressively of course), and dump into water. Mix furiously while maintaining eye contact. Chug said Kool aid drink in less than 3 seconds with a satisfying "ah" at the end. Once complete, ask when the next direct flight to DU is.

Our school has a very diverse population, but our district and building don’t embrace it very well, so I decided to start in my own classroom. I talked to my kids about family origins and then surprised them with a flag from each country of origin. Now when they walk in there is a small representation of who they are. It also sparks conversation about where the different flags are from and shows students just how diverse we all are. So far the kids love it and we’ve had some great conversations.
