Ah, to be remembered for grandmasters and grapes,
for Narnia and philosopher-scientists,
for St. Exupery and our avian companions on Earth,
for spreading chess fever to help us find our voice –
Thank you for this reminder
of the true curriculum I am meant to bestow as your guide –
yes, a teacher in disguise!
Still striving to take unstained out of this world…my panache!
I’m SO very glad that the world famous tenor Paul Potts made the cut tonight on AGT Champions. He and his fabulous wife Julz visited my classroom years ago, out of the goodness of their hearts, after he won the Britain’s Got Talent Championship. They had plenty of other ways they could have chosen to spend their time in NYC, but yet they came. They even played chess with us! Thankfully I have this video to remember it by.
