The quote by Sidney Hook (an American philosopher) above says, “Everyone who remembers his own education remembers teachers, not methods and techniques. The teacher is the heart of the educational system.” That’s so true, isn’t it? We may not remember anything or too much of what we learned in school, but we’re sure to remember at least one teacher who made a difference in our lives, even if it was just in a small way.
October 5 is World Teachers Day. It is also the culmination of National Teachers Month (which runs from September 5 to October 5) here in the Philippines. To celebrate, here’s an infographic dedicated to educators around the world and aimed at reminding everyone how important teachers are. :)
This post is a part of the Double Your Followers blog tour to spread the word about April Bowles-Olin’s upcoming CreativeLive course. Does hearing the word ‘marketing’ make your armpits start to drip with anxiety? Are you terrified of sounding salesy or like you have the personality of a dead blowfish? If so, come join me and 2,500+ entrepreneurs who’re taking April’s latest CreativeLive course, Double Your Followers with Creative Marketing. You can RSVP and watch for FREE. Yep, free. High fives, wildflowers, wine samples. Who doesn’t love free?
As part of the blog tour, I’m supposed to blog about one of these topics: a) What I’d love to learn from April’s upcoming course, Double Your Followers with Creative Marketing b) My biggest marketing struggle(s), or c) My most successful marketing strategy to date (examples: hosting an Instagram challenge or guest posting on a popular blog) and why I think it worked so well.
This week we changed the configuration of the fenced-in area for the puppies. We decided to give them a bigger space so now they have access to the most of the living room, including our couch. Little Max has already claimed the large pillow for his bed. Hairy part-husky boy Hero prefers to sprawl on the cold floor. It’s hard to keep Max from jumping on the couch so we decided to allow them on the couch except for the L-shape part, which happens to be my spot where I do all my stuff. Of course, it’s all they want to get to. Maybe it’s because that part is next to the window or maybe they just want to test my patience. LOL.
Anyhoo, all that have nothing to do with T-Shirt Thursday! Hurray it’s T-Shirt Thursday, friends! Yayyy. That is all.
Did you know that 756 million people, aged 15 and older, from around the world can’t read or write? Of that number, 115 million are between the ages of 15 and 24, and two-thirds of them are women. That’s bad. :(
To celebrate International Literacy Day and help raise awareness of literacy and its importance to the world, Grammarly put together this infographic of the latest stats on literacy.
Faaaak, I just finished this long post, published it, decided to edit it and add a featured image, and it frickin’ disappears. So I had to write it all over again. Boo.
Anyway, I was going to do this post yesterday for What’s On Your Mind Wednesday, Also Known As Let Us Ramble About Stuff Day (it’s a real thing), but I didn’t get to finish it so it’s here, a day late. It’s a good time as any to ramble, I say.
