Weekend Ed. Quote ~ October 4

Nobody can discover the world for anybody else. It is only after we have discovered it for ourselves that it becomes a common ground and a common bond, and we cease to be alone.

And the world cannot be discovered by a journey of miles, no matter how long, but only by a spiritual journey, a journey of one inch, very arduous and humbling and joyful, by which we arrive at the ground at our feet, and learn to be at home.

~ Wendell Berry





Weekend Ed. Quote ~ September 27

There are so many connections between teaching and sports! Consider this quote by pro tennis player Paul Annacone: 
“That is what great players do; they find solutions. They find how to win with what they have in the moment.” 
Paul Annacone, professional tennis player, coach, commentator during a September 21, 2019 telecast of the Laver Cup, [Tennis Channel]. 
The quote become even more applicable if the word “players” is switched out with the word “teachers.”



Weekend Ed. Quote ~ September 13

This quote resonates with creative innovators, artists, designers… just everyone who notices their gift. This quote is especially significant to me because I heard it first during a presentation by educator Niharika Kabra, Academic Head – Audit and Training, Potter’s Wheel Education Services, Hyderabad, India.

Everyone is born creative; everyone is given a box of crayons in kindergarten. Then when you hit puberty they take the crayons away and replace them with dry, uninspiring books on algebra, history, etc. Being suddenly hit years later with the ‘creative bug’ is just a wee voice telling you, ‘I’d like my crayons back, please.’ Hugh Magnus Macleod
