thirst

Screen Shot 2018-03-19 at 6.00.43 PMThere is a thirst
I cannot quench
and a hunger
not satiated.
To learn
to grow
to understand,
my soul is motivated

Sandwiched between snow days, district workshops, and parent teacher conferences I was invited to attend a conference on best practices in reading and writing instruction in Massachusetts. Though I have literally written a book focusing on best practice, I create space in my heart and mind -open to receiving new insights and learning each day. And so I leave my family, my schools, my cozy bed for two days (and two states away) to feed my soul and grow my mind so that I can better serve those children who may not even know how thirsty they are.

  1. “So that I can better serve those children who may not even know how thirsty they are.” What a great line. I feel like I could put that above my office door. I love your thirst for knowledge and your insatiable desire to share it with others.
