the {ART} of learning ...

     As a fifth grade teacher, it is my goal, within my classroom, to instill in my students a LOVE of learning. But the truth about {learning} is it is not something that is initially ingrained in all of us from the beginning. It is learned, it is perfected, it is a process - it is an {ART}.
     Even beyond the doors of the classroom, we continue this process; Learning patience, kindness, self-control,  the stock market,  relationships, keeping a budget, how to cook, organize, and keep a house among many.
It is all part of this wonderful {art}!

     These are but my simple musings, reflections, excitements, and day-to-day experiences along my journey, through teaching, living, learning, and sharing.

"True education seeks, then, to make men and women not only good mathematicians, proficient linguists, profound scientists, or brilliant literary lights, but also honest men, combined with virtue, wisdom, benevolence, and self-control as the choicest acquisitions of a successful life..."  - David O.
