Best wishes for a happy, healthy, and safe holiday to all.
If you can, please contribute to the fund set up by my former colleague Jonas Abramson for the family of Jeremy Briones, a student I taught at Middle College High School. Jeremy tragically passed away earlier this month.
The other school I was a teacher at was Jamaica High School. I miss Jamaica HS so much at this time of year. On the last morning before the winter vacation, many of the staff would sing holiday songs. This picture is from 2011. Thanks to Ibeth Mejia for sending it out.
Last night, for the first time in years, I got all sentimental and watched It's a Wonderful Life. The year has taken a toll on so many. I needed some hope. The buildup and the ending still move me after so many times seeing this film. Merry Christmas. Please stay safe.
