In the choreography of gardening, where plants pirouette under the sun's gaze and flowers sway to the rhythm of the wind, the unsung hero that orchestrates this ballet of beauty is the humble garden hose. Far more than a simple conduit for water, garden hoses weave a tale of convenience, nurture, and the bond between humans and nature.

Wetsuits are some of the most versatile items of clothing on the market, being ideal for swimmers, divers, or water sport-enthusiasts. Constructed from a durable, water-proof material that provides hydrodynamic properties and enhanced capabilities both under and above the water, they are a firm favourite for professional athletes and amateurs alike.

Artificial Intelligence Will Impact Your Children’s Future Self-Sufficiency

There’s no denying that during elementary school, children learn fundamental skills including writing, math, critical thinking, and problem-solving. The introduction of artificial intelligence may hinder their ability to think for themselves and stifle their creativity. 

So, what is the solution? Until a child is literate, can read and comprehend what they are reading, write clearly and convincingly, and compute through basic algebra using only their own brainpower, do not introduce artificial intelligence into the elementary classroom.

Seeing Our Students: Understanding How Lenses Shape Our Teaching

What I couldn’t articulate in my early career track as a teacher was that whenever I observed environments where students of color were present, I noticed the ways that implicit bias may have been at play in their learning and school environments. For instance, bias is obvious to me in school hallways in which children are walking single file, with bubbles in their mouths, to prevent them from talking to each other. This ill-advised classroom management strategy asks kids to close their lips and puff their cheeks, as if they are holding a bubble.
