jekoh: Would you want black and white or color? And more importantly, would you want it laid out in the grid like Tumblr had it, straight across horizontally, or straight down vertically?

Additionally she had been close with one of the three nuns who had been killed in El Savador in...

from-student-to-teacher: I know allergies are a major concern but the mathematic/cultural/sensory experiences from it are irreplaceable in my opinion. How do all of you feel about cooking in the classroom? I would love to. We’ve done pudding. But that was pushing it. Our principal isn’t a fan of bringing any food into school outside of school lunch.
