Consumating's Question of the Week

What would your personal philanthropic organization hope to achieve?



I'm sure these exist already, but I'd like to create some sort of "scholarship" for teachers. We all know they're not paid enough and schools are generally underfunded, so why not reward the teachers who are finding ways to make it work and help them to make what they do easier or more effective for more students? Most importantly, I'd like these awards not to be aimed specifically at teachers who elicit the highest test scores or help produce the most National Merit Scholars, but, instead, at those who teach students about life, who help students deal with the hell that is high school.

Consumating's Question of the Week

Math Club or Marching Band? What was your embarrassing high school affiliation?



math club, color guard, drama, travel & history club, spellbowl, environmental club, national honors society, leadership 101, student council, diving, soccer, musical, band, physics club, journalism -- i'm not embarassed about any of these. these groups are affiliated with all of my best friends and memories from high school. anyone that's "too cool" to appreciate that now can go straight to hell.
