Dear Lord, please help keep my tongue in check

smart people

  1. It’s Monday. I’m praying to be fascinating. Tonight, during class, the agenda is to play a trivia quest game. Praying my students have fun, are engaged and learn something.

  2. Patty, best wishes for capturing and holding their attention. And as every public speaker or teacher dreams about… maybe they even talk about the learning(s) between now and the next session – which they anticipate, like getting a gift.
