Writing is one of the favorite pass times that I have had since I was a child. I loved the art of lining the words down to express something from ideas to stories, thoughts and everything in between. I have heard about adventure story writers and about other such writers. I also want to become one of the ghostwriters. Can I become a professional in this field? Is it a legit career that I can get to? How much can I get paid for it? Can someone please comment on this with a professional point of view? Read more...

Please feel free to reach out to her at: [email protected] Read more...

Hi there, this is a complicated question, but it depends a lot on what your definition of "successful" is. In fact, that's a good place to start. What are you trying to accomplish with the program, and how can you measure progress toward that goal?

Looks like this teacher incorporated station rotations and had plans to build personalized PE fitness paths:https://twitter.com/STMSWildcats/status/1057798525906489344 Read more...
