So this is my first blog. I'm sure I've actually written this years ago, as I've always had something to say. But, officially I want to say hello to the world. My name is Joshua Parker and I am many things, but above all a Christian, husband, father, educator and African-American. What you can expect from this blog is quality material, insight and information about a range of topics from education, to popular culture to spirituality and everything in between. Hopefully in a little while, I'll have a fully fledged site with more bells and whistles. For now, this is me. Hope you're informed by what I say and that I can learn from what you know. Have a great day on purpose. Be the thermostat.
