Aaron's Unexpected Visitor

It's Friday afternoon and another week is in the books.  All the kids are gone, and Aaron's classroom is quiet.  As much as he loves and enjoys the kids, he looks forward to this time of day when he can grade papers and write out his lesson plans.  He also misses Charlotte and wonders if she's free Saturday night....

Looks like love is in the air, and it's not even spring.  Of course, love is always in the air somewhere, no matter what time of year it is.  One just has to be open to it.  It also helps to have a persuasive friend like Katherine who convinces you that it's ok to make the first move.  If she were here, she'd be grinning from ear to ear!  She's obviously convinced Charlotte; not sure about Jada yet...:-)

School Days at Moreville High - Mr. Dunbar's English Class

School started a couple of weeks ago at Moreville High, and some students are already complaining about the amount of homework they have to do. The ones that participate in sports, band or other activities know they must keep their grades up in order to avoid being suspended from after-school activities. Those students have no choice. Homework is a necessary evil.
Since Charlotte was concerned that Aaron would be too busy to have dinner with her at Bella Donna's, I thought we would sit in on one of his classes....

Justin would rather be reading football plays than a classic book like To Kill A Mockingbird. He doesn't realize that once he gets into it, he'll discover there are other things going on in life besides sports. He may even relate to the character of Jem who also loved to play football. But he has to crack the book open and start reading it in order to meet him! LOL :-)
