Clash of Culture

on May 24, 2019

on March 14, 2019

By Connie Mann When I tell people I’m a licensed boat captain and work on a river in Central Florida, their first question is: “Do you ever see alligators?” The question makes me smile, because it’s a rare day that I DON’T get to show the 5th graders an alligator.
