I recently read a blog post that posed this question: Do we really need to teach elementary age children handwriting, or should we focus more on keyboarding so that children have the computer literacy skills they will need?

I'm a busy working mother that lost 40 pounds and now feel so much more energy and strength.
While I was pregnant with my son, I questioned if I would ever be able to lose the weight I was putting on.
Once I gave birth to my son, I had put on over 40 pounds, and the thought of being able to button my old jeans up over my expanded stomach seemed almost impossible. I didn't want my stomach to stick out every time I wore a going…Continue

While many small schools are…Continue
