NEA blogs!

That's the National Education Association, not the National Endowment for the Arts.

True story: My artist wife and her artist friends and I spent years casually dropping the NEA acronym in conversation, never realizing that one of us was talking about a completely different institution.

Anyway, as a faithful pawn of the Teachers' Union Uprising, I thought I should pass the word on.

They are similar because they are both painting a canvas and creating something beautiful, which often times can't be judged until both are gone and have left their creators possession.

A very poetic image! I love it when you model higher-order thinking.

Miss our conversations about education. Hope you are doing well.

I miss it, too. Things are improving--I feel like I'm growing into the English teacher role, and Spanish is going quite well.

I hope things are going well for you, as well! Thanks for continuing to follow the blog. A lot of times, I write things that I would have talked to you about in previous years. I appreciate that you take a little time out of your very busy day to catch up!
