Three Little Words...
I asked some students to give me three words to describe my classes - what it is that I do, what they get from me, without using the words Educator or Teacher. These are some of the results, just as they wrote them.
The ultimate motivator
My trusted mentor
Arty guardian angel
I love natural heart-shaped things and I find them everywhere - from toast crumbs to puddles. My first two heart-shaped stones were given to me by my sons, who had found them in a field. After that, they kept popping up, in endless wonky variations. Some of the photos are not stones - one of the black ones fell off a piece of turf, and one is wooden, and fell off a tree trunk. Most are from the shores of Belfast Lough on a beautiful expanse of beach, with bright skies, hard light and the bluest waters (except when they’re grey..), that I have walked since childhood.
