Week 35 Sunday (9/14/14)

Recipe Review

Today’s Recipe and Location:           Panzanella
         Found in: The Pioneer Woman blog

         This recipe has many types of tomatoes and some veggies. I have to say it is a pretty salad. Maybe this one is something you would serve at a ladies luncheon. Enjoy!

Trivial Triffles

         I am working on putting my Aunt Ada’s photos in scrapbooks for her. I have had so much fun looking at all of her loved ones. Many of those people are related to me, and it is fun to see them throughout all stages of their lives. Scrapbooks are a wonderful thing, a great memoir of our lives. I love creating them, but I am afraid in the digital age that they are becoming obselete.

Memory Musings

         I had a wonderful experience student teaching at Munhall Elementary in St. Charles. My mentor teacher was Charlie Bell. He had my sister, Kim, in class when she was a kid, so I felt blessed to be assigned to his classroom.
         Charlie was also the assistant principal for the school and had a lot of responsibilities. Being an older student teacher (27 yrs. old), Charlie gave me a lot a freedom to try new ideas. He was so encouraging and positive, that I had the best possible experience. The scariest event was having to conduct parent-teacher conferences. He was present, but basically let me handle the entire thing. It was such a good learning experience. He helped me be learn to be comfortable with the parents. To this day, I find the parents to be partners in their child’s education and I have almost always had a terrific bond with both the child and parents.
         Here’s to you CB. You are such a good friend and mentor, and I owe you a lot.
