but the lighting of a fire.
~William Butler Yeats
This past week there were many photos on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter of students heading off to school. For example, one of my students has a photography business...No Filter Photography...I featured her in May...but she did some personal photos of her daughters as they faced their first day...and even managed to get the high schooler to pose! (Her business link is here in case you are local and are interested! )
I happened to sit down with the book shown below because of the cover, and I do teach college composition and literature. so I am always fascinated by any language books.
And, of course, the illustrations in these old books are wonderful...
So much of what is there is charming but outdated, and now for an example of something that will soon be unknown...the infamous cursive writing...
It is the supreme art of the teacher to awaken joy in creative expression and knowledge.
