Making sense

Anne Lamott, on writing ...

"We are a species that needs and wants to understand who we are. Sheep lice do not seem to share this longing, which is one reason why they write so little. But we do. We have so much we want to say and figure out.”

Staying connected

Alyssa Chandler's photo.
Me and one of my favorite former students, Alyssa Chandler.

One of the best parts of being a teacher is seeing your former students turn into adults. The 14-year-old  girl who sat in my communication arts class eight years ago  is now a mature 22-year-old young woman and fabulous mom to cutie-patootie Ivan. This picture was taken at Ivan's second birthday party mid-June. I was thrilled to have been invited.
