"Ahh, the smell of anger arises - effective it can be, in fueling efforts, in making others listen, in waking someone up - yet too it can begin to devour us, to color our vision & thoughts, direct our actions - So yes to heavy, HEAVY, payments…"

Matt Paust commented on Glenn Nystrup's blog post Anger in the Classroom

"Great photo Rob - - - And yes - I love the perspective young children can provide, and how fresh their simpler logic can sometimes be - While at the same time, they can sometimes see things more clearly than we conditioned adults can."

Some Words Just Catch You

(And won’t let go)

 

 

There was excitement in the air as my two grandsons were getting ready for bed. They loved being read to, and the chapter book they were in the middle of was of particular deliciousness to them.

"The joys of teaching are abundant -",are they?I agree with you in terms of having the opportunity to experience,create,develop,explore new possibilities and discovering the esprit in children on their way into their own approach of adventure.

Welcome at Our Salon.

Glenn: I'm glad you joined this happy troupe. I'm still getting acquainted myself, so my promised introductories may take a day or two. But I think you'll enjoy the place -- most of the folks I know here are vets of Open salon, which is in even worse disarray than before. So -- I'll include you on a list of those I alert to your arrival. Cheers - Jeremiah

PS - love the avatar.
