Loving Books

"Few children learn to love books by themselves. Someone has to lure them into the wonderful world of the written word; someone has to show them the way."
- Orville Prescott, New York Times critic.

May all the seeds of kindness that you spread along the way return to you and multiply.I think I'm going to try to remember this and use it as my personal mantra each day.

The Start of A New School Year

Well it's back to the regular routine for me! I have to admit I am looking forward to getting back to structure and normalcy. I find that I work best when I do that. However I am not looking forward to being so busy with teaching, dissertation writing, supervising teachers and planning curriculum and just plain life. But that is my reality now so I must accept it.

Today Cooke Center for Learning and Development's Lower School had their first full day. It was wonderful to see. The teachers did such a great job planning such engaging activities for all the students. The students behaved well and stayed involved with learning the routine and procedures. I feel so fortunate to be with such excellent educators.

After work, I meet a fellow classmate from my grammar school and high school years. I don't know the last time we spent time chatting. She now lives in California and is involved in media and movie work. We reconnected thanks to Facebook. She looked good and seemed happy. I wonder what her impression of me was.

She reminded me of my happy school years. I hope this year will be a good school year for many students and teachers around the world!!

It has been about 6 weeks since my last post and that is not good. I apologize to my readers. Quite honestly, I really have no excuse. I just wasn't being faithful to writing. I promise now to be better at it.
