Kylene Beers is taking some things on, for Lent.

Here's a really cool post by the thoughtful literacy blogger, Kylene Beers. I think you'll be inspired.
An excerpt:

"This Lent — and it doesn’t matter if you call this time Lent or simply the quiet days before spring blooms in all its brilliance — this Lent, I plan to do more taking on than giving up. I plan to take on the naysayers of education, reminding them of all the good that our nation’s teachers do each day. Dear teachers, don’t you lose sight of the opportunity you have each day to make a difference in each child’s life."

John Steinbeck thinks highly of you.

"Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts 
since the medium 
is the human mind and spirit."

~ John Steinbeck
