Mess of a Desk

After school on Friday, this was my desk.

For over twenty years I have referred to whatever desk I am using as "the landfill." As an inverate piler, I have often driven my wife to distraction with the mess of my home office area. I just seem to work well in this kind of environment.

Also for over twenty years I have had this sign somewhere near my classroom desk:

Dr. Michio Kaku recently posted some pictures of Einstein's desk as it looked shortly after he died.

Seems like I was right. Einstein and I have at least our "landfills" in common.

Given the looming shortage of teachers, we put together a positive article for prospective teachers as well as those currently employed as teachers called: “100 Reasons To Be A Teacher.”

If you wouldn’t mind, could you share our article with your readers?

Please feel free to contact me at wndgraham AT gmail DOT com if you are interested.

Many thanks!
