Shifting Ideas

I stare at my teached, open mouthed. I wonder how she found it? Sure, she is smart, but is she really that smart? Then I remember the four years she spent in college. I keep thinking about it all day, and finally decide to visit the library after school. I had forgotten how marvelous the library was. I sit down on a bean bag and read every single book in the library. I don't worry about time, because I had previously discovered that the clock doesn't move a second faster than you want it to. In this case, it doesn't move at all. While I'm reading, I discover something. The book changes as you read it! It is true. The pictures and their lines shift to fit the subject perfectly. This library kept getting stranger and stranger. Or was I just starting to think differently?

Rachel, Your writing is wonderful. Your word choices are intriguing and the tone is captivating. I teach 7th and 8th graders who would love to be able to write with your skill and maturity. Keep it up - I foresee writing in your future. :)

I teach 8th grade, and NONE of my students write this eloquently or this sophisticated. You have a gift for it. Keep writing!
