Pinecones and kitty cats

Photo by Mosippy

When I was ten, I had the most amazingly creative and memorable teacher in the history of the world who had us do projects that probably made parents roll their eyes and wonder what exactly we were supposed to learn from things like dressing a pinecone as a small person and carrying it in our pocket for a week. They probably rolled their eyes more when they came to school for parent-teacher conferences and saw that she balked at rigid classroom order in favour of letting us all have pillows on our chairs and our own box of kleenex on our desks. But clearly she knew that pillows and kleenex would keep us in our seats and focused on our work just as she knew that carrying a pinecone could teach us about both responsibility and perspective.

To this day, she is one of my most favourite people in the whole wide world.
