Thanks Britt Watwood! Here’s the masterpiece on Docstoc

Many thanks to Britt Watwood for twittering that he took this poem from yesterday's post and made it into something to “hang on the wall.”

I asked him to forward it back and it again moved me to tears as when I wrote it… it is just so how much I feel and is almost ethereal, like I didn't even write the thing.

I took it and am sharing it with you using a cool new site that lets me embed documents called docstoc.

Remembering Who I am – Get more documents

This site lets us upload and share all kinds of things. And image this — if we actually come up with a tagging standard and all begin to agree to use something like lesson_plan — then we can find lesson plans from one another. Free sharing!

Your words were written for all of us…and all of us have felt or do feel these pressures.

(and it was fun picking appropriate fonts to match the feeling…)

You go, girl!

Hi Vicki,

I use to post word docs and pdfs, and then embed them in our class wiki. Is docstoc better in some way?

This was beautiful. Thanks for the link to a new tool too. I don’t know if you noticed on twitter this morning but I think @dswaters and I were starting the @coolcatteacher fan club!
