I'm having so much fun teaching the Communitea class with my friend Suzanne. It is great to see a true professional work. The way she gets the kids to interact and participate has been inspiring. We noticed a few shy kids letting more outgoing kids do most of the talking. Ah life. To help encourage everyone to talk (and listen) I painted a Talking Stick. I'm hopeful that this will help to get the quiet ones to share their thoughts and encourage the more talkative to listen. Because that's really what life is about: Sharing, listening and learning.
