A plasma ball.
What a wonderful metaphor for school. Students are tendrils of energy reaching, probing for meaning as they mingle in a morass of unfocused potential. Beautiful. Inspiring.
And what is my roll as their teacher? I am the unseen glass which shapes their quixotic aura.
Today was the first day of school in Bridgeport. I think it’s going to be a great year.
