Playground Uprising

I went to work today. It was strange but invigorating to be surrounded by past and future students (and not to have present) as they gurgled over Charlie (yes he went to work too) and friends who continue to amuse and inspire. I had a couple of minutes to file through mail and textbook exam copies before heading over to meet 10 faculty members who are also partners, caregivers, moms, and dads, to discuss a book that examines how an individual’s stage of emotional and cognitive development, environment, and access to quality teaching influences his or her learning level. So there we were, 10 people, representing our respective disciplines of Biology, Mathematics, English, Chemistry, Political Science, Linguistics, Business, and Education, sitting and listening, genuinely interested in what each other had to say, professors and people committed to positive change, still believing it to be possible. Welcome home.
