Response to The Approach: Life Edition – How I Approach People

The first story of an approach that I can remember was when I was in the fourth grade and walked right up to one of the sixth grade teachers and asked him for something (I cannot remember what it was anymore).  The reason I remember this is not because it was out of the ordinary […]
