    "What we measure with tests is not what tests
    measure—not information, not spatial
    perception, not reasoning ability. These are
    only a means to an end. What intelligence
    tests measure is something much more
    important; the capacity of an individual to
    understand the world about him and his
    resourcefulness to cope with its challenges."

    David Wechsler

    “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.”

    Happy first day of spring!

    I hope poetry will become part of my children's lives, your life, and then your children's, not only because of the pleasure it will bring, but because the power of ideas, and the ability to express them, is the greatest power we have.

    Caroline Kennedy, From The Best-Loved Poems of Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis

    You're welcome Austin smile

    Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words.

    There are two educations. One should teach us how to make a living and the other teach us how to live.

    Keeping a child who can do sixth-grade work in a second-grade classroom is not saving that student's childhood but is instead robbing that child of the desire to learn.
