    My youngest tutoring student loves to share facts from things she has read. She is very proud of herself. The other day, she shared a very interesting fact:

    Student: Did you know that a long time ago birds could send e-mails?
    Me: Ummmm ...... wait, were you reading about carrier pigeons?
    Student: (excitedly) Yes! and they sent e-mails!

    A reminder to keep perspective in mind at all times.

    In the words of the great Ian Malcolm... "You were so busy thinking about whether or not you COULD, you never stopped to think about whether or not you SHOULD."

    Well, it was originally an April Fool's Day joke, then some people decided to test it.

    Okay, the next week she told me that, when she is in the sun a lot, her hair gets lighter. Not so unusual. But then she said her eyes get lighter, too.

    I like this student of yours - imagination is topped off at the very brim. I suspect she will go far. . . not quite sure in what, yet, but thinking outside of presumed reality is marketable. Thanks for sharing.

    She is a hoot. She is an ESL student and English is not spoken in the home. She was referred for tutoring after doing poorly on one FCAT practice test. :eek: I love working with her.

    Also, did you know that the eagle is America's bird because George Washington had one as a pet when he was a child? Yup.

    You can win a science teacher's heart with that, every single time. As a science teacher who teaches ESL, I know that we would be fast friends!
