Teaching and Learning

A Grade 7's Introductory Response to Dandelion Wine by Ray Bradbury

I would have to say that I am in some trouble.  I’ve been bitten by the blog bug!  I know that if you are reading, you can tell.  It seems from where you are sitting that mayhaps I spend hours doing this…no, it comes in brief fits of interest, intrigue and avoidance.  You see, I’ve really been here all weekend, working…creating things, learning how to use particular programs on the computer, familiarizing with Desire 2 Learn, making invitations, marking…you can’t tell that, can you?  But, at the same time, I begin to notice the massive list of things that interest me! (Cartography interests me…especially beautiful maps!) In an earlier day, we would say that the list of things that interest or intrigue me is as long as my arm…but likely, given our exponential shifting every moment, it is definitely longer!

It started with this morning’s coffee.  I came down to check my work e mail to see if there were any surprises waiting for me.  I happened upon a WordPress blog, as I was signing out.  I believe they call the location, Freshly Pressed Blogs.  Oh sheesh…and this was as I was logging out! 

I immediately responded to a beautiful blog that I saw there and ended up at the associated website of Jacob Murphy, photographer.  If you will go to this website and please look at the video that is contained there, I’m certain that you will appreciate it as much as I do!  I was especially touched by the video content because I was on my way to teach in our beautiful school.  I could not help but think about all of the advantages our students have and just how blessed we are as educators!  I felt so positive and full of gratitude as I headed out this morning.  Thank you for your photographs, Jacob Murphy.
