The Weekly Word

Hey People...

We want to hear from you about your ideas for submission...Ditty has promised two thought-provoking poems and we can only hold out for the promise of prose in the future (smile). Also, I know Ms. Wait is in deep contemplation over which ideas she intends to illustrate in print. Others of you have committed and know what you would like to write - please let us know.

Please, check out the following links to the right:
If you have not yet completed the survey on the website, please do so...those of you who are participating...thanks...your thoughts are enlightening and will be published.

In addition, many of you are not "traditional classroom teachers," but we have tagged you because you are educators and we need your input and your insight. Learning does not occur in a vacuum and it certainly is not restricted to the "school system." Please, contribute whatever you have to bring to the table.

We look forward to "working" with all of you.
peace and love homies,
alexis and sarah
