I have been challenged (tagged) by my colleague, Jane Perzyk. This challenge began with Miguel Guhlin suggesting the creation of an online Passion Quilt meme by posting a photo representing what I most passionately want children to learn in school.
The photo I selected was taken of me hiking, for the first time in my life, on the trails of the San Jacinto Mountains in Palm Desert, California. I call your attention to the size of the palm trees (relative to me) that appeared at the start of the trails. My initial thoughts when I saw them were that this was going to be an overwhelming and risky endeavor. On the other hand, there was a sense of excitement mixed in with the fear of the unknown. The anticipation of the positive feeling I would have after accomplishing such a daunting task is what compelled me forward.
I'll let the reader draw her/his own conclusions about why I selected this photo to represent what I most passionately want children to learn in school.
Miguel asks that we share post our photo, share with others in our network, and then sit back and see what shape this Passion Quilt meme will take. Here are four people I will tag:
