what an honor and a pleasure
to have spent two days
with intelligent caring educators from many places
share, discuss, question, wonder, listen,
learn from each other
respectful, compassionate, joyful, creative, curious, playful, democratic classrooms
for young children
where they begin
to discover and grow a love of learning
about the world near and far
preparing them for what is beyond
this comforting place
they call school.
“the limit of your present understanding
is not the limit of your possibilities.”
today on the first day
we welcomed our
new multi-age kinders class
(3s, 4s, and early 5s)
each in their own age and stage
to our school
many for the first time.

i loved meeting the young children
i loved meeting the educators who
understood the importance
play, compassion, kindness, projects, community
when teaching young children.
i met many people who were so passionate
education and children and life in general.
what a lot i learned from them.
the whole purpose of education is to turn mirrors into windows.
