Teachers don't want to make A's. They want to make human beings.  Teaching is a difficult and stressful job and since most students don’t know if teachers are stressed or are having a difficult time, that can make it even harder on a teacher because of grading work and taking care of the stud...

PDA is very common whether or not we think about it. Hugging in the hallway. Holding hands. Or even cuddling during lunch. But for many LGBT+  people, PDA isn’t accepted. So, Time for Love was organized by Grandview’s Gender Sexuality Alliance club (or GSA) to promote PDA--specifically holding ...

You see them at school. You see them in the hallways, in classes, and in the library. But what you don’t know is how hard they’ve worked to get to this point. Late nights, overworked hands. Practicing over and over and over again, until they get that one note right. Last month, on March 5th, G...
