That is a great book. I happened upon it quite by accident in the library one day. When I saw Wintergirls in the bookstore by the same author, I had to read that one too. Haunting. By the way, I had never heard of a dialectical journal until we moved to Colorado. Then Shannon had to do one for her book, "Still Kicking" by Katie Hnida. (Great book, also!) I had to ask her what the journal was all about!

That must make you feel so wonderful to be called inspirational! You are making a difference, Mrs. Juggling! :)

I love that you are where YOU wanted to be. I love that you are where THEY needed you to be!
Keep up the good work.


That was my absolute favorite thing to do! I'd give them random passages out of a book, and ask them to tell me what they could deduce about the character, setting, plot, etc. It was fun for all of us, and improved reading skills by leaps and bounds without them ever knowing it!

It's a rather lovely thought isn't it, that one day these students will be telling their children, or their own pupils, about the teacher who inspired them all those years back - and it'll be you. Fab. There are several teachers I still warble on about who inspired me.


wow - what a compliment to you. I'm so happy that you doing something you love, and truly making a difference!


No wonder you love that job! The kids sound great - like they are really motivated to learn. I am so glad you found it!

Could you ask for a better compliment?

How wonderful after years of "I want to teach," that you're now at "I love to teach!"


Really great compliment!


What a great teaching moment. They become your nourishment.

You are doing something right! And that doesn't suprise me one bit : )


I have no doubts whatsoever that you are inspirational. I'm glad your students see it, too! :)
