Levy Meets Elise

By G.P. Avants One of the great things about going digital this year at school is finding all sorts of tools to use. My principal passed this program called Pixton on to me. It allows you to create comics and engage your students into storytelling. I thought why not create a scene from Chronolocity: A…

Meet Levy Roarke

By G.P. Avants I wanted to share with you a fun project that I used in my classroom to get my high school students writing while trying to use something they seem all love, music. If was a fun idea that my daughter found on Spotify. Someone had created a playlist for Star Wars character,…

Dorkus Maximus

By G. P. Avants You gotta love someone with a great sense of humor. They are the sort of person who can find the punch line in any situation or can create one with ease. Maybe a person who can be the butt of a joke and take it with stride might be the rarest…

Building People Bridges

By G.P. Avants  Be yourself. I know one thing that is easy to do is fake being the real you. Neeks are teased and are often misunderstood.

I am Into Ships

The International Language of Neeks

By G.P. Avants What is that international language that is supposed to be the world language, Esperanto? I think that’s it. That would be a feat to get people speaking the same language. Unless of course you are a nerd. Oh, by the way if that term still makes your eye twitch maybe the term…

A Nerd’s Brand of Hero

By G.P. Avants  I think inside all of us is a hero that wants a chance to do something great. You know, we all want to change the world in some way. Can you relate? What can a neek do that compares with those who do great almost superhuman things?  As our character, Levy finds…

Nerdatonium Classification

es, I go to a school that has all levels of neeks. Not everyone thinks alike or do things the same. That can cause us to butt heads and cause tension between us. So, I shared with some of my closest friends, so we would understand each other and maybe be a little more patient and understanding with each other.
