Get Back to Inspired – A Thank You!

fr_muses

Tweet Ever feel like your muse has let you down?  Ever need a little inspiration?  That’s where I am right about now.  Uninspired.  There’s a long list of things to do and no good place to start them.  The holidays are bogging me down, not lifting me up.  My students, as much as I love […]

Less is More – Giving Thanks

Celebrating Patriots’ Day

Tweet Patriot’s Day is something I grew up celebrating. Actually, being born into a family who was part of a Revolutionary War reenactment group, I grew up colonial. My first Patriots’ Day parade found me at about 11 months old being carted behind my mother in a wooden wagon.  From there I was traveling to […]

Tweet There are so many natural connections between the MI theory and Arts Integration.  Some of them are obvious when you consider some of the Smarts that are identified: music, kinesthetic,  visual/spacial, linguistic.  But the MI theory goes even further with the other Smarts: logical, naturalistic, interpersonal and intrapersonal.  However, even these smarts are based […]
