the teacher is the learner.

Standard

what an honor and a pleasure

it was

to have spent two days 

with intelligent caring educators from many places 

coming together 

to

share, discuss, question, wonder, listen,

learn from each other

about leading

 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

every experience

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.”

sculpture.

Standard

when we come down the stairs we see a magical scene

full of sculptures before us

and we cannot stop running to the sculptures

that are all around us

we find out the difference between the meaning of

‘static’  – still

(like sculptures)

and

‘kinetic’ – moving

(our group leans heavily on the kinetic side)

and at last we sit to hear the story of this one

trying to be static.

“what sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to the soul. “
