Seen today hanging outside of a classroom in the hallway of an elementary school:


Teach to students and not to tests!

Encourage uniqueness! Encourage greatness!

This has been an amazing Fall----news-wise, weather-wise, work-wise! How is everyone's year going? What kinds of supports are you getting? What help do you need?

My favorite December poem....


I heard a bird sing
In the DARK of December
A magical thing
And sweet to remember.

'We are nearer to Spring
Than we were in September,'
I heard a bird sing
In the dark of December.
Oliver Herford
