Teaching as an Act of Optimism

By Tracyrosen

I gave this blog a little facelift, using a modified template I’m using over atCamping Out that I like. I think it looks nice and fresh, just like the gorgeous day I’m having today on my day off this week :) (I work 4 days/week). At the same time I changed the quote I use in my byline to

Teaching is the greatest act of optimism.

It’s attributed to Colleen Wilcox and rings true for me.

I’m wondering what it stirs in others? I invite you to reflect on it. Does it ring true to you as well? Why?
