It’s a simple way to offer an opportunity, a chance to live and make a difference to someone in trauma or nee [...]

There are lots of teachers that influenced my life and gave me the confidence to assert myself, to challenge and to ask questions. I remember a particular teacher in high school, Mr. Conklin, who encouraged me to not settle for the status quo and to push the norms. He’s a teacher I thank for his guidance in helping me develop as a young man. My sister and my sister-in-law are also teach [...]

I guess you can call it a lifelong “love of learning,” though I am sure some might characterize it a little differently. I am fortunate enough to have finished 23 years of formal education with all the accompanying joys, scars, all-nighters and degrees to prove it. I’m careful to call it formal education because I really haven’t stopped learning, studying, mentoring or teaching. And the [...]

The Ultimate Sacrifice

Posted on May 22nd 2018 by Florida Blue

Originally called “Decoration Day,” the first day of remembrance for our service members was held in 1868. Memorial Day as we know it did not become a designated federal holiday until June 28, 1968, and with that designation began the tradition of a three-day, long weekend. On Memorial Day we remember and honor all those who fought for the freedoms we are so proud to enjoy on a daily ba [...]

In 10th grade in St. Augustine, I was just coming into my own as a student-athlete. I was in Mr. Andrews’ math class, and it was full of seniors and juniors. They were all athletes, and as a 10th-grader I was absolutely terrified. But Mr. Andrews made it so easy for me to build a relationship with all those students. Together as a class we laughed, we had a great time learning, and at t [...]

I discovered my love of learning in fifth grade thanks to Mrs. McCoy. I was a student at the Douglas Anderson School in Jacksonville. Back then, first through 12th grade were housed in the same school. My teachers during my first four years of school were very strict and stern in their approach, but Mrs. McCoy was completely different. She was more nurturing, loving, and positive in her [...]
