I was tagged by Derrall Garrison for Miguel Guhlin's Passion Quilt. In this meme, I'm supposed to find an image that encapsulates what I'm passionate about and also what captures what I want my students to learn.
This image of a hand holding the globe up to the sky sums up my latest passion: using the Internet to connect my students with others around the globe. When I was in grammar school, I loved having pen pals in Sweden, South Africa, Illinois, and Missouri. It helped me see children who were in many ways the same as I was, but in other ways having very different experiences.
Thanks to the collaborative efforts of many teachers around the globe this is rather easy. I see some of the same excitement in connecting with other children that I had. I'm passionate about connecting with teachers who are looking to make this the best experience possible.
