Mother, teacher, & writer.I've left this so short for so long that I felt it was time to update this. I'm a mother first and foremost. My son is the most important person in my life and the greatest thing I've ever done. He's an adult and makes me proud every day.I'm a teacher. This is my profession & my job title. I can teach elementary up to 8th grade, or English from middle school up to high school. I have my BA & my MA so I'm a bit educated. But even with all this education, I still make some silly mistakes in my writing. As I tell my kids, it just proves I'm still human.I'm a writer. I've been writing off and on since I was a teenager. It took the encouragement of a dear friend to find the courage to share my stories. I honestly never thought I was any good or that anyone would like my writing, except my friends. I'm pleased that I was so wrong about this.I have often said I write what I would like to read. I work hard to produce quality writing pieces, which is why there are so often gaps with my posting. I'd rather take my time and post a quality piece of writing than rush and post a piece of crap. I feel that those who are taking their time to read my work, deserve my very best.I also try to not be a "one-trick pony". By this I mean, I try to not have predictable stories, though I will admit, sometimes I don't always succeed. I have been told I like my happy endings, and all I can say is, "What girl doesn't?"One last thing. I don't mind some naughty chats here on Lush, sexy emails, or pics on my profile (if you've seen the comments some have left, you'll know why I say that), but don't ever for one moment think that I will be leaving my husband or jeopardizing my marriage to meet you in the real world. I'm a private person and keep certain details of my real life private. If I feel comfortable enough to share with you, please respect this.
Okay... to begin with... I take a lot of issue with the author's point (and I'm talking about the author of the article... not the member who posted this.)Teachers are teaching the difference between facts and opinions. I won't disagree with point. But... to assume that we are the ones who must teach morality to children exclusively is wrong. Where are the parents? I expect (maybe foolishly) parents to teacher their children about moral facts... what is right and wrong. I know my parents taught me to not steal, be kind to those around me, not disrespect others, and when necessary to stand up for my beliefs. In turn... I taught my son the same. I even incorporated other adults in my son's education in this field including sports coaches, religious figures, and scout leaders. Though I did expect my son's teachers to enforce the rules of moral issues (like if he was caught cheating on a test), I never expected them to teach him these exclusively.Here is where teaching Moral Facts becomes tricky & I'm going to try to be as delicate as I can. Some parents take a lot of issue when teachers try to teach their kids moral issues that might interfere with their beliefs... specifically in the realm of religion . I can't teach sex education without parents permission (I'm talking middle school/high school kids). I have to be very careful when talking about specific wars as they often have a religious element to them. And don't get me started on the parents who don't think dinosaurs really existed or existed the same time that man did. oh holy hell . I make it damn clear that was a HUGE mistake... but one we cannot ignore. Ignoring that would be just as stupid as ignoring the Holocaust or the Japanese Internment during World War II. This is when teaching the Constitution gets tricky. I do show where it WAS in the Constitution and why it is no longer there (the necessary amendments that removed those restrictions.) I also cover changes in voting rights and how free black men could legally vote before all women (the issue of ability is a topic all unto itself.) I have covered the Constitutional requirements for a person to become President of the United States (35 and older, native born, must have lived in the country for the last 14 years.) This was important when Barack Obama (love him or hate him) and Hilary Clinton were running (and are for HC now.) Nowhere in the Constitution does it say a person must be male or white. I often tell my black and Hispanic girls & boys that if they were born here, once they are 35 or older they COULD be President.So, who am I to tell a child their opinion is wrong? According to their parents... I work for them. Yeah... they wish. Truth is I work for the school district who employs me. I pay taxes just like everyone else. I work for my administrator & my superintendent.I will correct a child with they have their FACTS wrong... but when it boils down to opinions... I just often suggest we agree to disagree.So yes... it is important to teach children the difference between facts and opinions. Mushrooms make a great pizza topping. That's an opinion. Not everyone is going to agree with it. Benjamin Franklin was one of the Founding Fathers of the United States of America. That's a fact. There is documentation to back this up.That is what teachers are trying to teach. That is what the Common Core is trying to help us do. But don't worry... in about five or so years... we'll have something new. Of course right now that is an opinion... but it's based on the facts of the past.

Just depends. I personally enjoy it as it's a special way of pleasing my man.
I know this thread got rather heated with some amazing opinions (and a few who thought this was just a joke.) This morning, I came across this article from The New York Times about Screen Addiction and kids. It instantly made me think of this thread. It might re-spark the debate... it might not. I just think it has merit and it fits with this thread. Screen Addiction is Taking a Toll on Children
That I'm actually pretty talented as a writer.
If they are talking about my husband... then a great ass. All joking aside... a great personality... but hey... if they like my ass or my body I'm good.

My parents have owned their house on the beach in sunny Southern California since before I was born. My dad, a successful doctor, and my mom, the civil lawyer, had always dreamed of living on the beach. When they bought the house, it was a real fixer-upper. It had been devastated by a storm and abandoned, but Mom saw the beauty and potential in it. My dad thought she was crazy, but he loved...

I stood in front of the salon with the Groupon printout in my hand. I held it like an award I had won and was proud to have. It was a pick-me-up gift from my mother for when I got my next interview or two. That was why I was here, to get my nails done for an interview I had the next day. I wanted to get my hair done, but – well, my budget wasn’t going to handle that, no matter what. As it...

Everyone has a fantasy, even me. Mine is to be fucked by a stranger in an elevator. Let me explain why I have such a fantasy. I love to read, and many of the erotic porn tales I enjoy have some scene where a girl encounters a man, often a stranger, in an elevator and something kinky and erotic takes place. Sometimes she’s groped and fingered, sometimes she’s pinned against the wall and...

Kennedy waited in hungry anticipation. She felt the sweat on her back mixing with the cool air of the air conditioner. She could only hear the soft movements around her, the roar of the air conditioner, or the hum of the butterfly clit stimulator buzz when Lorne pushed the button. Each time bringing her close to an orgasm, but always stopping early. She would fruitlessly hump the air until...

Author's Note : This is part of my Cala de Sirena series. This story occurs between Cala de Sirena and Return to Cala de Sirena, for those who might question the time line, though I wrote it after the two mentioned. Thank you all for reading & returning to the cove. It was Don Taylor’s last day before he began his family leave, and it couldn’t end soon enough. It seemed that every...

As the plane descended, Delaney Hunter heard the pilot on the PA say, “Good evening ladies and gentlemen. We are just about to touch down at McCarren Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, in just a few minutes, and we are right on time. The weather around McCarren is rather warm with temperatures in the low nineties. The local time is 10:43 pm, so those of you with regular watches might want to take...

“I don’t want to go,” said Mitzi. “And just why not?” asked Courtney. “Because I don’t have a dress for starters,” said Mitzi. Mitzi Kramer and Courtney Wells had been in several dress shops looking for an evening gown for the New Year’s Eve party they were invited to. Courtney was tall, slender, with long, straight, dark brown hair, brown eyes, and curves in all the right places. Mitzi...

“Please Mommy! Can’t we go see Santa?” cried the twin girls. Victoria Kramer was wishing she was anywhere but the mall right this moment, but here she was, and of all days, she was there on Christmas Eve. She was here because her mother called her in a panic asking – no begging – her to pick up those special cheese nut balls that only Hickory Farms sold in the mall during Christmas....

On October 31, 1864, the Nevada territory was granted statehood into the United States, making it the thirty-sixth state. In 1993, the Nevada State legislation designated October 31, as a state holiday, or Nevada Day. Then, in 2000, they decided to make the last Friday in October the day Nevadans celebrate Nevada Day. This is a fancy way of saying school and state government buildings are...

The morning sun hit Zane’s face and he heard a strange, unfamiliar sound. He opened his eyes to see Olivia in her swing and Katherine in a chair sipping coffee. “Morning,” she said. “Morning,” he moaned. “Coffee?” “Please.” “How do you take it?” “Black.” “Get your pants on please,” she said, tossing his slacks to him. Katherine left the room as Zane slipped on his slacks....
