about the blogger

I am a teacher by default.  In school, I was good at a lot of subjects, but didn’t shine in any.  My job throughout high school was babysitting, which I enjoyed.  When it came time to pick a major, I chose Early Childhood Education.  It seemed easy enough.

Through the years, I’ve refined my teaching skills (thankfully) and fell into a job-sharing situation where I got to teach part-time.  My subjects being Science, Social Studies, and Writing, I became knowledgeable in  and then passionate about those areas.   This year I begin a new adventure, going back to teaching full time.

As my own children grew older (currently both in college), I started having more time for other pursuits: kayaking, travel, mild middle-aged adventures, and writing for myself. Somewhere along the line I shifted from teacher to learner, from dispenser of knowledge to observer of life.

This blog represents the leakings of my brain and its accumulated  thoughts and observations about life and learning onto the palette of the World Wide Web, where ideas can be blended, tested, and maybe even applied to life’s canvas.

I welcome your comments.

Hi, Brian! I’m so glad you read and enjoyed the blog! Isn’t Alaska such a neat place? I’d love to go back. In the meantime, though, there are lots of good books that can take you there. I think Mrs. Samaha is going to read Call of the Wild by Jack London with the class in October. It doesn’t take place in Alaska, but it is in the Yukon, which is very close by in Canada. I have a picture book about a school in Alaska called Recess at 20 Below. Can you imagine? We’ll have to search out some good books about Alaska to read until we can go there for real!

Love your blog. Yes, Joy is a standard and a very important one. How many times have I said, “School should be a joyous place.” I certainloy experienced the joy standard the day Ms. Fallaw and I, along with a few students,deocrated our tree. I’m already planning next year’s tree. Love your writing and your blog. Have a relaxing and joyful holiday and I’ll see you next year.

And the Office’s winning entry of “Best Charlie Brown Tree” was (one of) my favorites! Thanks for leading the way with joy and enthusiasm!

O.K. Should take more time with my typing and spelling. Hope you get the message anyway. The sentiment is accurate even if my spelling is not.

Thanks Mrs.Eberhard for the wonderful visit with Mrs.Courtney. I had fun and learned about how the Depression affected people’s daily lives.
