Cast your mind back to when you were younger and your teacher announced that your class would be doing a Show & Tell. Maybe you’d go home and search through your treasures to find the perfect thing to share. Maybe you’d be nervous about what your classmates would make of your choice, and by extension, of you.
This ritual that most of us have participated in is freighted with significance. The objects or stories that we choose to share are sacrosanct because they act as our stand-ins and describe something important about who we are and what we value.
That’s what this blog will be about. We’ll be posting every week (or thereabouts) and sharing stories about the work we do in the classroom and with families, about our struggles and successes, about who we are and what we value. We hope you’ll tune in.
