On this new year’s eve, I was feeling nostalgic and was searching for music on my iPod that would suit my mood.

I found it.

This song by Simon spoke to me and I knew I had to share it…

What Are You Teaching Today? Poetry That Inspires!

Reading poetry is inspirational! And teaching it can be even more so. If you haven't thought about using poetry in your daily work with students, I really want you to re-think that whole idea today.

April's theme of National Poetry Month can be a great way to kick-start the use of poetry in your classroom. I'm keeping this book on my desk in April: …

Nobody tells people who are beginners…

I’ve spent a lot of time over the last two months researching people and blog post ideas that speak to the message of how to stay inspired. I’ve paid particular attention to those that are not educators. Why you say? Well…I really believe that we, those of us that are educators, have to take the time and the initiative to learn from others in different creative crafts and get out of our “educational” box. I believe that stretching into a space that is not educational, helps me to see my work…

What are you reading today? Poetry that inspires...#poetry

 

 

April is National Poetry Month and it's been a while since I've taken the time to slow down enough to truly read poetry. Read it slowly, enjoy it, savor it, relish it. Let it "slow cook" in my heart, mind and soul.

I know...poetry is not for everyone. But I do know that I love it.

So I thought...what is the best way that I can get back…

The topic of discussion around the Global Crisis of  HIV and AIDS is difficult.  It becomes even more difficult when you add the need to have this discussion in our public and private school settings. The stigmas are huge, but the dangers to our students, of being ill-informed, are even bigger.

My son Jason is experiencing  first hand, how difficult the discussions really are, working in Florida as a patient advocate for…
