My Rambling Thoughts on Teaching and Learning

Wow…. I Really Do Admire You!

I had the pleasure of spending the day with my sister (@littlemsschull) today.  And as usual she has challenged my way of thinking…  You see we have been through a tough few months of revelations and healing, and while we are a long way off being able to say we are cured (if that is even what you say when dealing with psychological scars) we know we are on the healing path.  I’m proud of my little sister.  She has taken a huge step for her and decided to go back to university to study.  Not only is she going back to study she is going to study counselling.  And this I know is no easy step…

Wow… I Really Do Admire You!

While spending the day with my sister we went to see the stage show Driving Miss Daisy staring Angela Lansbury, James Earl Jones and Boyd Gaines.  The show was amazing…  While I entered with a little understanding of the story line (mainly through conversations with my Omie) and worried that I was decades younger than the average age of the audience, I found the story entertaining, funny and emotional.  At the end of the show my sister and I were reminiscing about how as young girls we watched Angela Lansbury in Murder She Wrote and Bedknobs and Broomsticks.  Realizing that we thought that she was fairly old 20 years ago we were curious as to her current age,  a quick look up of IMDB discovered that she is 87.  This blew me away…  I recently saw my 87 year old Omie (Grandmother) pass away and she was in no way the same shape as Angela Lansbury.  I really do hope that when I reach 87 I have the same energy to be working with such passion…

This week one of my colleagues celebrated working at the same school for 20 years.  In that time she has had many many different roles and each of them has been more diverse than the last.  As I listened to her introduction of accomplishments I couldn’t help but be proud, excited and honored.  I get to work with this wonderful woman everyday.  I learn something new everyday as a result of working with her.  Thank you for teaching me so many new things.  My friend, I hope that when I have been working at our school for 20 years that I have half  the list of accomplishment that you do…

Wow… I Really Do Admire You!

I hope that one day I can be as inspirational as these three great women are to me…
