Student Melts My Heart

Mark Twain once said, "I can live three days on one compliment."

I've got him beat. I'm living on one said eight days ago.

I assigned my students the task of making their own name plate (or as one girl called it "a license plate") to go next to their display at our gallery on Presentation Night next week.

Before giving them paper and markers, I explained what I meant by "name plate."

"If you've ever been to an art museum, " I said to the second graders, "you will remember that there are little signs with the painter's name close to his or her artwork. For example, you might see one with great artist Claude Monet on it, or Grandma Moses, or Auguste Renoir."

"Or Miss Zoanna!" said little Eric.
