Late last month, A.E. Phillips Elementary School and the College of Education at Louisiana Tech University offered a learning experience for both local children and students hoping to one day become teachers.

Darden, Jessica mug.jpg

It’s not often these days that I get to curl up with a good book and read cover-to-cover in only a day or so.
I have my go-to authors who I can read over and over again — the same book mind you — that never gets old. I am enthusiastically delighted when I read an oldie and find something new that I overlooked the first time.

That’s not to say the Tigers didn’t have a little fun in their initial workout, but they were still all business during the practice session.
