Thank you for a Great Year!

I'd like to send a B I G thank you to all of you who have participated in this blog over the last year. Each and every thought that has been expressed has contributed to the growth of all of us but especially the teenagers who have used this site as a springboard to explore their own values.

As of today our classroom will shift from answering questions and move in a new direction: we'll be discussing quotes from famous and even not-so-famous individuals and talking about what the quote means to us and how it can have value in our own lives. We may even discuss the person who made the quote or the history around it because context frequently contributes as much as the quote itself. We hope that you will all continue to share your own reflections in the upcoming year.

Our new site is:
