Summer Vacation

For me, teaching was a calling.  I knew since being very young that I would teach school-aged children.  I planned then to use long summer vacations to travel.  Travel, I reasoned is an adult education.  Indeed, Euripides, the celebrated ancient Greek playwright recorded: “Experience, travel- these are an education in themselves”.  

Today I find myself in my most beloved city of Athens, recharging and renewing my love for my profession.  The modern ancient city fosters wonder and, I confess, a wealth of opportunities for adult-centered play.   

As a summer project on Child Centric, I’ll post a project I’ve developed for students relating to requirementsI’ve encountered in my previous schools for phonetic instruction .

Be well, friends.  And have an educational summer!
