Today, I thought I would link to some of my more popular past posts. For whatever reason, these posts have been read over and over. I’d love to know what makes them so popular with readers. Read one or a few. Each post can be accessed easily by clicking on the title or indicated text. Let me know what you think!
I apologize for the formatting issue that appears early in the post. I have attempted to correct it several times and the text reverts to the large size.

Interestingly enough, this morning (4/14/20) I received a detailed comment from a Graduate Student in Mathematics in response to this old post. He/she makes some great points. The post is worth a read. His comments can be seen at the end. I will be responding to his comments later today.

Most of these posts were written with passion for the subject they addressed. While that lends to interesting writing, these posts are often also those that irritate some way. Reflective writing cannot (and, should not) always be politically correct for it is influenced by our own knowledge and experience.
This post has received many views because it links to some valuable supportive resources for the Gifted and Talented Student population. It is of interest to me that many posts addressing giftedness are views but few are “liked” or commented on. It is unfortunate for all – students, teachers, and parents – that this subject is still not fully addressed for the population that needs it. My suggestion is to pick one of the resources listed and do some reading if you have any contact with the talented and gifted student population.
Over the last three years, I’ve written a series of posts on leadership. This is the original post in that series. It is more briefly written than you might assume but stimulated some longer more contemplative posts on the individual characteristics of leadership.
To round out some of my more popular blogs, is this humorous piece on an animal I saw near our house a couple of years ago. It was about this time of year the animal was spotted and provided all the excitement! Enjoy! I hope it makes you laugh!
I find it satisfying to go back and read some of my previous blog posts. What draws readers to each post (especially if the post is somewhat old) is also of interest to me. Feel free to leave comments about which post you chose to read and why, as well as what you thought after you completed the reading.
