C'mon try them. Green eggs are cool!
In my heart I know that this job, and all who are affiliated are a gift, one that has changed my life.
Perhaps that's the reason I always find myself amazed and delighted by the "common" things that are sometimes overlooked, expected, or simply taken for granted in our incredibly hectic world of education.
This week, (Dr. Seuss Week), I had the privilege to observe the wide eyed excitement of some very happy first grade students. Proudly donning tall red and white top hats, they smiled with glee as they absorbed all their newfound knowledge of America's very own beloved writer and cartoonist, Dr. (Theodor) Seuss.
Now trust me when I tell you.... attaining the delicate balance of this much learning, and that much fun, is no small feat.
This is just one of the many reasons I admire our teachers so much. It takes super human energy, boundless creativity, and a pretty generous pocketbook to perpetuate the type of learning environment that's being generated here..
Like I said....
I love this school.....but more importantly, so do our kids.
If you don't believe me, come see for yourself. And if you're lucky, Mrs. Power's class might my just whip you up some of their famous, super- duper delicious green eggs.
