Hi my name is Heavenle, I live in Florida but I'm not in Professors V's class. This festival sounds so amazing and big. I have always respected and adored the culture of India and all the colors it incorporates in its ceremonies. I don't think I saw but- how many days does this festival last?

Hi there Vysakh,

My names Cristian, but everyone calls me cris since they dont feel like saying a mouth full.  Regardless, im taking proff V's intro to ed becuase im also aiming to be a teacher and mostly in the middle school area.  Im a Navy vet so im used to being an intructor of some kind to new faces and some old that dont have a clue.  I think thats why teaching is fun and very interacting, something new everyday.
