Writer. Teacher. Traveler. Treehugger. I believe in kids, the arts, and respect for natural cycles. I came of age in the 1960's and always thought we would get better. More peaceful. More humane. More accepting. Still working on this... and, as Mother Teresa said, "Peace begins with a smile." A smile, an education, and the truth.

Midwinter. We just passed the 100th day of school, a time full of counting and sharing 100 "things". We use pennies, blocks, cubes, paper clips, shoes, books, pencils and crayons. We make patterns of 5's and 10's. We count all together in those big outdoor voices. We put a fat red 100 on the number line that snakes around the classroom wall. We mark what we have learned and what we have learned to love.
It's all in the joy of learning... and for me, the joy of leaving.
