|"She (was) a Mod" - but not today.|
|from "Teaching the Teacher"|
- My form 2 teacher who allowed a small group,of us to write our plays. We were fully immersed and presented them to real parent audiences.
- The junior high teacher who let us explore the imaginary back worlds of novels like "The Sword in the Stone" about Merlin and Arthur.
- My mother who always supported learning by attending every interview; who filled a chest of drawers with cuttings and project material.
- My friend Sara who showed me that every four year old's "why" question was important and who could discuss why clouds were pink at sunset and why the sky was blue. Our kids were allowed to paint their faces and dig huge mud holes in her backyard.
