Walden Pond

I feel my job as a teacher is to teach my students to become self-reliant, inquisitive, critical thinking, and reflective citizens so that they may blaze their own trails. Thus, Thoreau’s Walden Pond seems appropriate, especially with such a vividly gorgeous reflection upon the water.

I think I’ll tag three people to see what they think: Ryan, Mimi, EHT, Betty, and Miss A.

    I’ve done this, and I LOVED what I learned about why I teach. I enjoy going around to others’ reflections (no pun intended) and seeing what makes my friends and colleagues tick…

    I really liked yours (the hands on the world were great), and I thought it was an interesting reflective exercise. I tend to come back to independence when asked about my teaching; plus, a little American Literature brought into the discussion (my picture in this case) makes me happy, too. :)

    A very inspirational response to the Passion Quilt meme.

    I remember visiting Walden Pond as a fifth grader during the annual American history field trip to Boston. Little did I know that I would be reading “Walden” six years later as a high school junior! Stop by and check out my contribution to the Passion Quilt meme. Repairman tagged me as well.

    Thank you for thinking of me. I’ll try to get to this by the end of the week. Hmmm….I really have to narrow it down to one thing? :) You know me—–I’m all over the place since there’s so much I want to share, but I’ll try.

    Thanks! I’d love to visit Walden Pond, though I wonder if Emerson and Thoreau would approve. They always spoke/wrote about blazing your own trail and not following others. Maybe if I didn’t follow the established trail…
