Just returned from a wonderful presentation. Paul Spence is an old friend that I'd lost contact with over the years and I really regret that - I'd forgotten what an amazing spirit he has. The way he spoke tonight - I won't try to comment because my words wouldn't do it justice. I just gave him a little arm hold at the end as a thanks. The night was for sacramental preparation and highly spiritual in content so I won't go into it here but it's given me plenty of food for thought as a person and lots of implications for my life as a teacher. One of the many things that's 'stuck' so far was that maybe we shouldn't be so worried about building children's self esteem and more concerned with building children's self respect. That brief sentence doesn't do the idea justice but it's what I want to write so I don't forget the idea and can think more about it later.
This is not really going to be a blog; more a way to add random things, and to make questions and comments easier.
