Obviously May is a bit of a crazy month and therefore I have not blogged. However, I have been writing. I am honored to share my thoughts via the Milken Family Foundations Connections online magazine. When Whitney Friedlander, the editor, asked me to send some pictures to accompany the story, I shared we were having Superhero Day at school to promote our book fair. The graphics guy ran with the idea and I am now a cartoon! Check that off of the bucket list.
While I wish I could rock a superhero outfit as well as my caricature does, I do believe teachers have super powers and I am so thankful for all of the superheros who have passed my way and the way of my daughters. I hope you enjoy the article and spend your summer recharging your powers. The enemies of ignorance and illiteracy are awaiting our return to the battleground.
I am a teacher, which in a single word, sums up my passions and my belief in the future.
