    Five Ways Students Can Improve Academic Performance
    Five Ways Students Can Improve Academic PerformanceThe need to improve academic performance is real and can sometimes take a dark turn; in fact, recent data shows that many students are turning to 'smart' drugs to improve their grades. It should be noted that the pressure to get good grades could...

    @Gerald Hecht I think there can be no higher accolade than a student telling his professor that "he is cool". All the best in your more independent pursuit of 1) develop a love of learning in students and 2) strengthening my own love of that feeling of "leaning a bit too far back in one's chair". For me personally the best post to come from your pen. Emoji! Emoji! Emoji!

    #6 @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher yeah, it still never fails to make my day; in Louisiana, most students at the State/Public University systems (and yes, in Louisiana it' really is plural: LSU system, SU system, UL System...and I believe one other) are from in state; and many (although a decreasing number) stay in state...so from 18 years of (just my intro courses at SUBR and LSU alone) that's thousands of former students who still live here...those kinds of encounters happen about twice a week on average...and yes, as you say; I think that an opportunity to teach/learn with younger people would be both 1) a chance to really make a difference in a region of the country which desperately needs such phenomena, and 2) a tremendous responsibility --in the best sense of the word, i.e., http://abcnews.go.com/US/wireStory/confederate-monument-supporters-gather-beauregard-statue-47449697

    #5 @CityVP 🐝 Manjit yeah, I think that's where the "nice work if you can get it" problem has its genesis...social/economic institutions have a "playbook" that "has to be followed" and is monitored with continually evolving tools...still, I can't let go of my idealism entirely (and at my age, I think it's a permanent "condition")...I think if one can reach them early enough...all kids are bright; it's the gig of total flexibility and tailoring of the "curriculum" without being sanctioned for every deviation from the institutionalized playbook/best practices...an overseeing body who would actually be willing to monitor things over sustained periods of time...and also be willing to really redefine (actually, stick to the existing definition [of critical thinking, sound question generation, etc.] which are increasingly empty terms) success...I still believe that where there's a will, there's a way.🤞

    The majority of my top students pursue the subject (Economics) that I taught them in school. I feel encouraged by this because this may mean that they see something in the subject that is relevant to them. Maybe the subject fascinated them. The last note I received is from a former student who has now settled in the United States. She sent me a FB message asking how I was and if everything was ok on my side. It's not always we get this kind of messages but it does make you think that somewhere somehow we have made a difference in someone's life. Thanks @Gerald Hecht for a great piece!

    I love the idea of helping students before they enter college. I wish I would have had that type of help when I was trying to make up my mind. How exciting to have a former student confide to you that you made a difference. That would have made my day!

    I think it pays to include the prefix "bright". Bright young students are a joy to work with, but unimaginative young people can drain the psyche. Life is too short to end up with a classroom of kids following me, my caveat is looking for young leaders and then I have something to work with and one can reciprocate in a true two way relationship. This is nice work if we can get it, and for me, at least by setting a standard or parameter may lead me to a different place.

You know, I planned on being a literature teacher after planning on being a pianist, now I plan to not plan much which might not be very wise. I'm mostly ok with that though, and I still get to go to school all the time, like when I'm reading your words which always make me reflect and think and discover things and people and ideas.

    #1 @Yogesh Sukal Exactly! The "clay isn't fired yet"...we could go discover stuff; a chance to be more of a half catcher in the Rye and half fellow student...if that makes sense. Its only recently become a "vision" that keeps knocking on the door...I would want to be (even if the only one, or one of a few) who exerts as much energy as possible into maintaining "fluidity/flexibility of thought...a guide in the technique of "science as sculpture"...the art of discovering things that "don't fit" whatever discovery path we take on a given day and how to "chisel them away"...a "truthish" sculpture --the essence of scientific inquiry!

    In my opinion, primary school students are more amazing to teach than a PhD candidates.
    As these kids dont know many theories in science & technology, and hence try to imagine more rather than searching the solutions in already studied theories.
    Hence they have actual no limits and boundaries to think upon.

    Also look at the Policy Declaration Page for what is specifically covered - because some services you pay for, are NOT applied to the deductible. Also if there is a third party liability instance ( and the insurance company will always push for another to pay first ) your claim will not be paid until liability / coordination has been assessed and appropriately assigned.
    Also to add into the fun, don't forget Roll-Overs from previous year, FSA rules of Paying Health Deductible Expenses, and Network of Coverage Liability limits for Coverage / Deductible.
    Enjoy - I am sure I am forgetting a few hoops and jumps of the red tape - but be assured - they are there.

    Connecticut is awesome. I lived there for 18 years, although in central CT, not down around the shoreline. Have been to New London a few times. Good luck there...it's a beautiful state. If the shoreline's too expensive for you, try the middle of the state. I miss the mountains and stone walls and lovely scenery. Ontario is a great province to live in but it's flat and boring except for the Niagara Escarpment. Too much like Ohio! (Where I did twelve years of hard time. Or at least that's how I think about it...had to move there with my parents when I was twelve.)
