I’ve enjoyed Teacher Magazine for several years, but the November/December issue seemed to have something for me at every turn. My sister went to Simon’s Rock [“Classic Rock”]; my brother had Frank McCourt for high school English at Stuyvesant in the ’70s [“Joyless Endeavors,” Comment]; my own school is a one-room school on an “isolated island” [“Lost & Found”]; we had one of those “Flat Stanleys” visit here [“Paper Trail”]—we took snapshots of him “playing hockey” on a frozen puddle—and I’m currently reading The Arctic Schooner Bowdoin to my middle schoolers, and the author just mentioned the Clearwater [“Hudson River School”]! Just thought I’d let you know how well you’re hitting the mark around here.
