Daily Oral Language
My friend and colleague, Jeff Zupfer, makes music. He writes lots of different things, but because he also teaches music at an elementary school, he writes a lot of children’s music. During our cold-cold-cold #PolarVortex days here in Minnesota, he wrote a song… about Minnesota. What made me even happier was that it made it into The Current’s (one of our local NPR radio stations) Friday Five.
Well deserved! (Also, take a listen… it’s catchy!)
Black History MonthBrooklyn teacher Hollie Tubbs

This little tidbit shared via Twitter simply made me smile.
Some random person took out a full page ad in a newspaper to talk about some general grievances along with some general kudos. There are a lot of good bits, but I kind of especially liked the general “I am pleased with cheeseburgers.” I wonder if he meant to address it to a specific restaurant or chain, but it’s quite entertaining without the specificity.
