Earth, Wind & Fire is one of my all time favorite groups!! Have a great day/week! 🤗

like

One of my favorite bands of all time. I saw them in concert in the Bay Area in the 90’s and they had a full orchestra and dancers. Best show I’ve been to.

Omg, I love this group… My favorite songs September, That’s the Way of the World and Fantasy… This group puts it down on the concert stage, and I got to see them perform live in 1970’s as a kid with my folks, at Budweiser Festival at Meadowlands… I always mentioned to my 19 yr old daughter, that these performers today have nothing on the groups in the past, like Commodores, The Gap Band, KC and the Sunshine Band, etc, etc, etc… I mentioned to my daughter, it was nothing to see at least 12 great bands and artists performing together with no one beefing about top billing, etc… Or at least, the concertgoers knew they were beefing about headlines… Good Times 🥰

Sad News: Verdine White, Bass and Guitarist- passed away this year… He was Maurice White’s brother, and I think there was another brother, who played the drums in the band too!

I’m going to see them in concert next month and I can’t wait 😃

Coming from an extremely musically inclined family of educators, EWF has always been at the top of our list! “Devotion” and “Keep your head to the Sky” have been some of my inspirational favorites of all time! Have an awesome year colleagues! WE’VE GOT THIS!

I currently need classmates and an instructor to motivate me to memorize speaking phrases and practice active conversation. I know there are apps for this type of language exchange, but they're usually 1:1 matches and virtual.

I was recently informed by a teacher's aid that another teacher in my school thinks that I 'Do Nothing' as an art teacher, and went so far as to spy on me outside my classroom to reinforce her opinion.

Welcome to our pre-k inclusive classroom. Even with 8 students, and only face to face for 4 hours, we struggle. We struggle being heard through our masks. We struggle with social distancing. We struggle as we find ourselves constantly reminding students to keep their masks on. We struggle to keep them engaged and to teach. One thing we do not struggle with- building connections and showing out love for each child.

I am considering making a proposition to the partners at my firm to take over our satellite office and make it my own whereby I would be associated but not employed by the firm.
