  1. Thoughts and prayers are with him and your family.
  2. Thank you. I was so confused with the ELA teacher's explanation. She was so adamant and told me not to bother trying to understand the subject. Ugh
  3. Sentence - John was running. What is running? Back story, I am a part-time Resource Room teacher at a small parochial school. I was helping a fifth grader today with his ELA. The assignment was diagramming sentences. The teacher told the students what to look for in each sentence - gerund, direct object, prepositional phrase. This sentence was on the assignment sheet. The sentence "John was running." was marked as having a predicate nominative/predicate adjective. I was surprised and asked the teacher. She said running is a gerund and is acting as the predicate nominative. Silly me, I thought "was running" was past progressive, was running was the simple predicate. Can someone please explain it to me? I feel so silly but I don't see "running" in that sentence as a predicate nominative.
  4. I am with you. I would much prefer factual updates. I am not as interested in the human interests segments which are so popular now.
  5. Forgive me, I am very tired and on my way to bed, so I may not make sense. But, I would remove "start a career in human resources." Maybe something along the lines of transition my skills and experience to a career human resources. I would get away from indicating no hr experience as the ad mentions 2 yrs of experience in hr or like field. I am unclear as to why you need a career summary … maybe to combine your eclectic background. Generally, I would include that in a cover letter, not resume. But I don't know your specifics. Good luck!
  6. Hugs and prayers and good thoughts! You go fight this and I (we) will keep you tightly in prayer.
  7. Thank you so much for sharing. Opened up this forum for another topic, saw this one and …. Anyway, my next project is to plan our Greek Mythology section.
