While visiting my sister recently I spied a stitchery that hung in our shared room growing up for many years.  I must have stared at this thing every night countless times.  Now that I think about it, I want this on a t-shirt. can I make that happen?  

Anyway, my fascination with teaching and reading started young and this stitchery is evidence of hours of contemplation about print.

Keeping Track of things

I like to think I'm an organized person but with four jobs, six kids, two classes, and research projects on the's hard to keep up.  I had to bust out my handy-dandy white board and write down each thing and what the next steps were for each one.  Then I didn't spend so much time thinking of what I was supposed to do for what but just glance and choose. Old school, I know.  But it's been working for me.

School Running Goals

This was seen in a local school and displayed proudly in the hallway.  The whole school is trying to run a certain amount of miles and each class takes time each day to go outside and run a few laps and then document how much it all adds up to.  I liked the visual this teacher created to show how far they've "run" so far.
