"Teaching isn't just a job to me, it
is an important part of who I am."
  
 -Karla Hayden
In a
workshop,
notebooks
are a
treasure  
box waiting
to be filled
with wishes,
dreams, and
wonderings...
and a place
to reveal
one's
thinking.
Classroom management, organization, and
procedures are crucial to workshop success.
The teacher who
is indeed wise
does not bid you
to enter the house
of his wisdom
but rather leads
you to the threshold
of your mind."

--- Kahlil Gibran
“A stumbling block to
the pessimist is a
stepping-stone to the
optimist.”

~ Eleanor Roosevelt
If you learn only
methods, you'll be
tied to your
methods, but if you
learn principles
you can devise
your own methods.

- Ralph Waldo
Emerson
I cannot live without books.
-Thomas Jefferson
We all have
ability. The
difference is
how we use it.

~Stevie Wonder
I am enough of an artist to draw freely upon my imagination.  Imagination is more
important than knowledge. Knowledge is limited. Imagination encircles the world.

                                                        ~Albert Einstein
Education is the
door to freedom.

~Oprah Winfrey
“Be a lifelong learner.
Learning brings new
insights and ideas into
our lives, and this spills
over into what we do with
children in the
classroom.”

~Marilyn Burns
“Teachers underestimate
their power. As a
profession we need to
speak out. For too long
we've worked in isolation.
We need to collaborate
and we need to plan and
reflect together. Bring
down the walls that divide
us as we form our own
learning communities.”

~Lucy Calkins
The success of a school is
determined by how a
family of teachers and
administrators works
together.”

~Harry Wong
