Cheers! My Birthday Celebration with the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours

After losing my grandmother a few weeks before my birthday, I really needed to celebrate life. I know she would want me to do that. This year, I decided to ring in a new year of life in wine country. My soror traveled up from So Cal to visit. This would be her first time in Napa. I didn’t want to drive so instead, we bought bus tickets for the Napa Valley Wine Country Tours.

Check Out My Article on Teachers Talking Race

Hey Cocoa Fly Readers. Check out my article in the Fall 2009 issue of Teaching Tolerance magazine. The magazine is run by the Southern Poverty Law Center. My article "Talking Race" is about how discussions on race need to happen in the classroom as well as the faculty. Apparently, race isn't discussed amongst teachers. How can instructors teach kids about race if they're not comfortable discussing it? There's some interesting stuff in the piece. You can read it here. Feel free to speak your mind on the article in Cocoa Fly's comments section.
