Two Hidden Gems for Locals on the Landing: Miss Match and Men's Mojo

The stores there, which many locals regard as filled with key chains, T-shirts, and beach-themed snow globes, are for the tourists streaming off the ferry; but nestled between the bike rentals and sea shell stores are two boutiques that have much to offer Coronado locals as well as our visitors:  Miss Match, an exciting boutique for all women (which I couldn't…

Laura McNeal at her computer with Link on her lap

As a child in rural Utah, novelist Laura McNeal was obsessed with books. “I lived in books more than anywhere else,” she said.  But she never gave much thought to writing one herself until she was asked to analyze a Hemingway short story in high school.

Coronado Living: Why You Should Have Your Friends Over for Dinner

Our first home in D.C.

When my husband and I first got married, we lived in a 388 sq ft studio in Washington, D.C. That tiny apartment was like a bird’s nest; we were level with blooming magnolias in spring and could see the Capitol Dome out our window.

Despite having just enough room to turn around in, we made a regular habit of hosting friends for dinner. We were young and so happy, and so we opened our doors and borrowed chairs…

An Educator's Perspective on Common Core

-Kevin Nicolls, Coronado Pathways Charter School Director

In my 25 years as an educator, I have weathered countless movements in education. Common Core isn’t the first attempted overhaul, nor do I anticipate it being the last. Whenever we introduce a new approach to education, I always try to evaluate the motives of those promoting the movement. Are they focused on creating a deeper learning experience, or perhaps a profit in introducing new curriculum?
