It's pretty amazing the amount of talent that passes through my classroom each year. There's simply not enough space on my classroom walls or blog page for that matter to show it off. But the poster at the top of this post is special, because it was a gift from one of my students who knows I have a deep admiration for Mr. Robinson.
No... I'm not some freaky stalker who eats, sleeps, and dreams of Jackie. But I frequently use Mr. Robinson as an example of "courage" and "perseverance" in my class. In fact, the following quote is hanging in the front of my class:
A life is not important except in the impact it has on other lives.
You might be wondering... why didn't you show this off in February? Well... I actually misplaced it and discovered it buried in a stack of papers on my desk while I was cleaning my classroom this morning.
So Aimee... if you're reading this. I apologize for the delay, but thank you very much for this poster. By the end of the week, I should have it framed and hanging in my office @ home.
Everyone else... have a great week!
