Her journey (still unfolding!) can be seen through the beautiful, powerful, thoughtful songs she wrote.

Making sense of the shifts and changes in the world has always been one of the roles of music. This might by songs which teach; it could be through songs which offer escape. Maybe there a tune which gets people dancing together; perhaps there's an uplifting song which opens doors to community, perhaps it is a piece that expresses grief, or joy, or understanding which can be shared as the music is performed and heard. Events change, but the role of music continues on.

Last summer, my students and I read The Hobbit together. It had been 30 years since I’d read it. I have to admit, I reveled in the classic story, long buried in my brain under years of reading. As you know, it is a classic tale of a quest; a long, life-changing journey. The travelers have to battle (and avoid) various creatures, traverse extraordinarily vast plains, wend their way through mountain paths, and pursue their quest across Middle Earth.

Studying Abroad? How a Roommate Can Be Useful

Located in the Catalan region of Spain, Barcelona is one of the most historical cities in the world. Perhaps what makes the city so attractive to those not living in Spain are its long history and the presence of the world-beating Barcelona Football Club. While Barcelona has recently been in the news for its secessionist politics, this has hardly made the city less attractive to tourists and international students.

Through the Eyes of an Educator: Moods, Changes, and Shifts–Oh My!

Remember when you were between the ages of 14 and 18? That age bracket isn’t easy for any of us– growth, learning, changes, mood swings, and figuring things out take place–and that’s without adding any extra and guaranteed teenage angst or life obstacles. I taught high school for well over a decade. Those are the humans I know; those are the humans I understand. Perhaps, as adults, we don’t all sit around and reminisce or remember about life in high school or those early teenage years.
