  • Teaching Tip Tuesdays Are Back!

    Image via Wikipedia Teaching Tip Tuesdays are back. Every Tuesday, during the school year, I share with you tips, ideas, and resources that you can use in your classroom. I hope you’ve enjoyed your summer holidays. I know the students don’t start back up until next week but most teachers will be in their classrooms […]

  • Carolinian Trail – Pinery Provincial Park

    Pinery Provincial Park is simply breathtaking. It is located on the shore of Lake Huron just south of Grand Bend. “The Oak Savanna and Freshwater Coastal Dune ecosystems which make up the park are extremely rare and fragile and are home to many equally rare or endangered plants, animals, and insects.” I really should have […]

  • Get Ready For School With 1 Word – Sleep

    Image via Wikipedia Going back to school is a big adjustment after having two months off. Many students have been staying up later than usual. They’ve also been sleeping in. So when it comes to having to wake up early, many kids just aren’t prepared for the first and subsequent days of school. Having a […]

  • Stop the Back to School Madness!

    I hate how the end of summer turns into a “Back to School” season. It has somehow become entrenched in our culture that our kids need new things to go back to school. Why? We have a public school system that ensures that all of our children can get a quality education. (Stop laughing) I’m […]

  • The Podcast Is Fading Away

    I started The Chase March Show way back in June of 2009 when I had the opportunity to interview The New Cities.  Since then, I have posted 18 episodes that have featured interviews from rappers and Olympic athletes. I even featured a mixtape that I made. I had planned to release monthly episodes but I […]

  • Females Are Killing It

    In a recent interview, I asked Eternia why there aren’t more women in rap. This is what she had to say, “I don’t believe that there is actually a lack of females in hip-hop. I think there’s a lack of coverage, oftentimes. I think that getting ourselves out there with multiple full-length albums, there is […]

  • Muneshine Interview

    I was really excited to go to the Shad / D-sisive / Ngajuana concert last month. I had already interviewed everyone on the bill that night but the D-sisive interview I did was nearly ten years ago and it was for the university newspaper. I was really looking forward to interviewing him again for the DOPEfm […]

  • Give The Roots Their Due

    So I’m rolling in the car with a friend who is not a fan of rap music. My MP3 player is hooked up to the car stereo and we’re listening to some country music. Tim McGraw’s Southern Voice is an amazing album. Love it! Anyway, she feels like listening to something else and starts scrolling […]

  • Green Army Men Skateboard

    I don’t reblog often. Instead I usually share cool images that I find online using Twitpic. However, I really wanted to share this image with all of you. A green army dude figure is doing a kickflip with his flat plastic base. That is just golden there. Much props to the artist. I so want this t-shirt. […]
