What's the blog equivalent of a breakfast platter? Scrambled observations, tangly reflections, deep-fried fears, and special-ordered celebrations. This blog chronicles my thinking about books, children, teaching, and learning. Order up!
I'm messing around with posting pics via flickr. This was Easter starting out her half mile race. She was way nervous, but also brimming with determination. She had to get up before seven, which isn't easy for her. It was the 7-9 year-old age bracket so she is taller than most those other kids. I wish I'd got a cleaner shot. No, she didn't win, or place, but she finished!
How bout that Venus Williams, again? I'm enjoying her matches even more than NBA games.
I am a teacher in Salt Lake City. I love kids, books, and chocolate. I love to help students find the right book at the right time and I believe reading tons of great books for pleasure is the way to high test scores and (far more importantly) a way to lead a more thoughtful life.
