Coping with teacher troubles part of growing up

November 11, 2010

  Dear Edi, For some reason, I think my teacher hates me and I don’t know why. They don’t call on me when I have my hand up. They even blame me for things I didn’t do. Any tips on how to get...

New year brings new standards

September 23, 2010

As a new school year begins, it brings with it both the old and the new. The same old hallways, the familiar faces of classmates we’ve known since preschool and the yearly reading of the syllabuses...

The presidential race and the media

May 12, 2008
When the TV turns on, it’s there, it’s also on the front page of every major newspaper. These targeted audiences may already know what I’m talking about; the presidential race is the biggest thing being covered in the media to date, and it’s not getting any younger.

There really is no place like home

May 12, 2008
