I'll be back soon...

This week is parent teacher conferences in my school district. We use a student-led format, which makes the child the real star of the show. I really love conferences because they are a wonderful time to connect with families and make a real impact on individual students. It is also a week of at least 12 hour work days. I probably won't be around much, but I wanted to leave some beauty and inspiration behind.






May your week be full of color.





The images are scans of old greeting cards. Aren't they lovely?

wow i really love this second shot. the colors are so beautiful - muted to a soft patina all worn with age.
of course i love the first one too because i have a weakness for anything sunflower.

that's interesting how you do the parent/teacher conference but that must be a very tiring week for you.

have a great week.

I know the exact week you are having! Those 12 hour days are killers, but meeting with parents (esp. child-lead!) are great. Your students are soooo very lucky to have you as their teacher.

I love your attitutude towards parent-teacher conferences because many teachers in Palo Alto dread them. It's difficult to live up to the demands of the average Silicon Valley parent. I have no delusions in believing that I'm any better than the average Silicone Valley parent. I wish it was different.

Enjoy your busy week and try to take care of yourself.
