As the responsibility-free hours of spring break fade from (if we are lucky) our rested minds, I am reflecting on the importance of getting out: out of my head, out of my house, out of my zip code. Getting up off the couch is a simple act that can be so hard to execute. Gravity wins all-too-ofte...

I did as I normally do every other week. I sat down at the desk in the corner of my room in the pitch black except for a lamp illuminating the area directly around my laptop. There were papers and letters and water bottles scattered on the ground and deadlines creeping toward me. I was on empty...

Charter schools. Magnet schools. Vouchers. Common Core. Standardized tests. Absence of technology. Unaccredited schools. Politicians. Lack of parental involvement. Overcrowding. Violence. Budget cuts. These topics plagued my research around public schooling, my second-semester ALAR/P 2 topic. ...

Barack Obama was the first president I remember. I know when I was born Bill Clinton was in office. But after my eighth birthday, it is President Barack Obama’s election I remember.

There’s no easy way to say this. Oh wait… Yes there is. Let’s pick up our crap. EHS is one of the greatest schools in the state of Missouri. We have the type of faculty who go out of their way to know each and every student and make them feel comfortable– the type of faculty that pulls students out of c...

I was never a fan of high school. Since day one of freshman year, I never felt like I fit in. I felt I was stuck in the confines of EHS. I had few true friends, and I was not very involved. I never felt like it was my place. I was never truly happy. “You are home” is a quote from my favorit...

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away…. I was a little kid with big dreams. For my fifth birthday, my parents bought me a Star Wars chess set. On one side were silver characters shaped like figures from the light side of the Force: Yoda, Leia, Luke and the other rebels. Facing them on the o...
