I feel like I've just spent the last two hours reliving the 1950's.

At least three times in the past half hour you've said "one of the only." I realize this isn't the biggest issue today, but, c'mon Brian, you know better. Please remember to make that "one of the few."

This is particularly annoying since right now you're talking about high school instruction.

I think you should bring in Suleika Jaouad, not a trained coach, but a young woman who found that she had leukemia soon after graduating from college. Suleika struggled with both the physical and emotional challenges that life brought her, and she has offered her insights and motivation to others struggling with life's interruptions, as she calls them. Check out her "Life Interrupted" columns in the New York Times well blog. She also has her own website.
