Good news for the day!
Phenomenal Woman!

I love the video that's included.
Truly a southern lady, gracious, humble and more.

She's a phenom teacher. Words cannot describe how great a teacher this woman is and an inspiration to live life to the fullest!

She travels the world every break, spring, summer, winter. She's been to every corner of the world many times over.

I've been blessed to have been invited to sit in on her class a few times and even was invited to speak/teach once on a subject near and dear to my heart, writing. Not to mention my children and the life lessons learned from her. I didn't go to this high school (I went to the high school rivalry, ha) but how I wish I could've had her.

I'm envious..a degree in English!
The subject is near and dear to my heart.

Here's several more articles. For those that might think that teachers have no lasting impact, think again!

Joe (and others) I love the first link and was made with much love and affection for this beloved teacher of many generations.

I do so love the experiences my children have had from their school years.

More links can be found on this wonderful woman..but for now I'll leave the above for you.

I'm getting all teary eyed watching and reading. So many children/young adults have gone through her classes that I know and she has done justice to her time spent on earth.

Thanks Joe!!!!!

Are kids different today? Haley says they're not: "No, they're just like they were when Adam and Eve hatched 'em."

That's awesome. What's there not to love about her??

And, having a college degree in English, I applaud her ability to make McBeth fun...

My 16 year old just got finished studying MacBeth and onto Merchant of Venice.

Fun conversations! <smile>

In the last few years, I've been slowly working my way through Shakespeare again.

Take care, Donna
I can't read the title of this thread without thinking of Maya Angelou's poem. I can hear powerful readings of it in my was a favorite at college poetry slams. I was always amazed how a powerful reading could bring new life to a poem.

About that makes me think of my high school American History teacher. She was TOUGH but knew her stuff. She'd been teaching it for many, many years, and still teaches. She is in her 80s at least, maybe 90s.
