Messages write the story

Each time we hear a message, it becomes part of our narrative – the story we tell ourselves is fostered from the time we are small, and isn’t saved for that magical time called adulthood. Sarah Kathleen Peck lays out the way to visualize our story as we face changes. Image if we equip our students with the same skills. […]

Learning at its finest starts in the heart

Learning at its finest starts in the heart

From middle school, the Meyers Brigg inventory has been used, but the piece that we missed is that the label evolves, so do not take it all at face value. The pieces we forget, again, are the holistic approaches to this idea. Sure, I was an “extrovert” when I was in middle school. Circumstances deemed it to be so: My […]

Pinterest has consumed me. I held out for a long time, working, writing, grad schooling, mom-ing, and all the parts that go with that, have kept me away, which is good. However, winter break and the need to make gifts came. So I started benignly enough, looking at my friends’ pages to see what  they have decided to be their […]

Frozen- thesis in animation

Okay, we have to talk about it. I’m sorry, we do. My high school girls are obsessed with Frozen and, admittedly, I am as well. The boys saw it with their Mimi and were fine with seeing it again, but it wasn’t the reaction that Drew gave when he found out he is going to see the Lego movie for […]

February deadlines bring busy and full desks: virtual and real.

Filling up the files

When my desk and desktop start filling up, it is a good reminder to breathe, dig in and get through the madness of whatever is causing the chaos. In this case, it is pure Journalism.

Make the choice – school for all

I love Good. It is a community of folks who are collaborating to make local communities that much better. When cynicism creeps in, I go there to be inspired, to remember, to be surrounded by people who want to facilitate change and are doing it. The infographic links to some important information to have while looking at the way we […]
