Meme: Passion Quilt

Curiosity.

Anyone who stops learning is old, whether at twenty or eighty. Anyone who keeps learning stays young. The greatest thing in life is to keep your mind young.

- Henry Ford

Many thanks to Kate Olson who tagged me for this "passion quilt" meme post.


The rules are simple.


1. Think about what you are passionate about teaching your students.

2. Post a picture from a source like FlickrCC or Flickr Creative Commons or make/take your own that captures what YOU are most passionate about for kids to learn about...and give your picture a short title.

3. Title your blog post "Meme: Passion Quilt" and link back to this blog entry.

4. Include links to 5 folks in your professional learning network or whom you follow on Twitter/Pownce.

My Picture

I chose this picture because it shows children totally engaged in the act of discovery. Not only is this something I thoroughly enjoy seeing in my students, but it is also how I am feeling while learning all that Web 2.0 has to offer my students and me, as their teacher.

My Passion

I have always been very passionate about the environment, literacy, and our children's future (not necessarily in that order). I wonder what lies ahead for my students, and I know I may play a small part in that. It's an awesome responsibility.


You've been tagged: I'm passing this meme onto five teachers that I've met through Twitter (and one in real life!); my apologies if you've already been tagged:

Karen-

Sorry I got your location wrong. I'm glad to hear that your school is also raising money for this. Have you read the book? So inspiring! Thanks again for the tag.

Amy :)
