Popping the Cherry

Ok, before I get to the meat of this blog (my first ever! go me!!), let me give you a little background about myself because, honestly, I think I am one heck of an interesting person. Hehe. That's if you can actually get me to conversate, which I rarely do. What can I say? I'm shy. And modest. I live on a beautiful, small, very hot island in the middle of nowhere Pacifica. About 60 square miles of pristine (if you squint really hard), off-white sandy beaches and gorgeous blue waters. My home is in the middle of the boonies and my bosom companions are three dogs (Hero, Ina, and Debu), two parents (Mama and Pops), and 50 some odds ducks (Smelly Bastards). But I'm no bum at the beach living off my Pop's generosity!! I have the dubious honor of educating (more like disciplining) 180 12- and 13-years olds on the importance of Geography. They haven't gotten the best of me yet!! And I love them, but I don't know why because they're actually quite rotten.

So, having read thousands of books (honest), I thought I might share my opinions on some great reads and real duds. Just trying my hand at this shepherd role (Did I mention I'm Catholic? Shepherding is in my soul!) I'll try to keep a tally on my monthly reads. But please, take all these reviews with a grain of salt because I'm a picky eater, uh, reader. And to each his own.

Thank you for linking to my site, BeyondBehaviors.Com. It is my sincere hope that educators in Saipan and throughout the world use the strategies and tips offered to help them in the classrooms and schools.

My wife and I just relocated back to Dallas, Texas but the memories of our time in Saipan will forever be etched in our hearts. :)
