TEACHER, AUTHOR, EDUblogger "I want to (read and) write books that unblock the traffic jam in everyone's mind." ~J. Updike
God doesn’t always do the expected. In fact, it is usually quite the opposite.
When newspaper editor, Cassandra “Cass” O’Neal, gets the opportunity to write her first article she is over-the-moon excited. Her story is on a local homeless shelter and how they help get people back on their feet. On her first visit she meets some of the residents and thinks that she’s got her story, then she meets the mysterious man that lives on the grounds. His name is Doc and he is something of an enigma. After her first interaction with him, her original reason for going to the shelter becomes something else, entirely. Cass and Doc will embark on a journey that will change both of their lives.
This is a story about how God changes things, sometimes, in the most unexpected ways.

I am an Educator, Award Winning Christian Author, Freelance Writer & Blogger,Youth mentor, Bible Teacher, and TREK AWANA director. Teaching provides an opportunity for me to engage in continual learning and growth on many levels. I work for my students not only to master the course material but to give them the indispensable advantage of having a growth mindset. This mindset has been stripped from many of our students; yet this is the undisputed secret ingredient for their success in the world outside of my classroom. I strive to be a globally connected educator. With my #LatinoEd #Edublog I seek (as J. Updike says) "to unblock the traffic jam" in the minds of my students and peers. In this way, long after they have left my classroom and they encounter a world that will try (and many times succeed) in knocking them down and telling them they "can't," they will bounce right back up, and with an intrinsic confidence say, "Watch me. Watch me make a difference!" It is then I will feel that I too have made a difference.
