Edited to fix the link. Thanks for the heads up.
Our friend, Becca, works in public education. She called my attention to an important blog post, and I’d like to point all of you to it.
I tend to flounder about wondering how best to steer the Needle and Thread: Stitching for Literacy program. I don’t have time—no one has time—and I often don’t know how, exactly, to execute my ideas. I just . . . try. But these things I know:
- literacy and education are vitally important
- libraries, schools, teachers, and kids are important
- we all learn differently, and it’s important to expose kids to many ways of learning and many things to learn—including embroidery
- I care
And so I will keep trying.
When it comes to reading, there’s no such thing as starting too early.
I wonder in what other ways we might support teachers, kids, literacy, and education. School visits to teach embroidery to kids? Might I do virtual visits from here? After school programs, teaching kids to stitch? Maybe it’s time to talk to more teachers and librarians to see how we can help them. What do you think?
Please read this blog post by Peg with Pen titled, Child Abuse In Corporate Education Reform: I Cannot Feed You, But I Will Test You. I’m with Peg on this. Now what can I do to help? Will you join me?
