this is awesome.
Thanks! It really means a lot to me to get feedback on what I’m posting here.
This is nothing short of amazing… dammit anna you just keep getting better! all the color work here is incredible. the frame with the super teacher really showcases a beautiful original style.
Considering you are one of the most talented people I know, this means a lot – thank you!!!
Anna, It’s beauitiful. I LOVE the color washes! But your exploration is so fine. “The truth is I was (am) both”, is so liberating to come to. It leaves you free to try and fail. So key to finding your way through to the times you (and the kids) try and fly away.
Yes! I love how Kate Bornstein points out that this is true in so many contexts.
Anna–this is beautiful! I feel humbled by your exploration of the teaching process.
Thank you so much! I know you are lending your talents to this world, yourself, and I’m honored that my reflections were of interest.
I enjoyed most of all your pointing out of the “wild country” of teaching. I had a similar thought last week when a friend asked how my day went and I felt obligated to tell either a funny, aggravating, or inspiring moment. Having none of these, I shared nothing, even though my day had been filled with these brief, simple moments with my students that I didn’t feel were good enough to tell.
Yes! Totally! Really interesting.
This is so beautiful. Thank you. In the mix of watercolor, handwriting, and graphic novel, the imprint of the teacher story, however briefly lived, is so powerfully conveyed. I am so appreciative and moved.
Thank you so much!
Great art work, Anna! I love the water color addition and also how you leave room for nuance in the tendency towards absolute truth.
I love this so much. I keep coming back to it. It’s so beautiful, the colour and the renderings, the content, the pondering. It makes me miss SWS, my high school program, a lot, and constantly discussing teaching and learning and the evolution thereof, especially unschooling and unschooling-descended education. Sigh.
wow. beautiful just beautiful
