Education isn't a tree, it's a web.
About a year ago, I asked Mr. Visser where he thinks schooling will be in five years, ten years, fifteen years? At the time we were talking about technology, but what ensued was a much larger discussion about schooling in general -- one that I think holds great promise for SCS.

In my first few weeks at Watson Groen Christian, I was introduced to Mins Reinsma; however, I really never got to know him until the day he showed up in my office. It was a hectic type of day filled with all the trivia that is administration. The office told me that someone from the church wanted to see me. There was that quick thought--Now what have I done?

I enjoy recess duty.
Of course, I appreciate a recess break alone, too. A few minutes to set up for the next lesson and refill my cup of coffee are surely appreciated.
But I enjoy recess duty. It’s good get outside. The fresh air wakes me up more than caffeine. The sight and smell of the trees fill my lungs with good things. The casual, playful encounters with the children make me laugh. No wonder recess is a favorite with all ages!
When I’m outside with the children, there’s no official curriculum agenda. I have lots of time to hear their tales of loose teeth, new running shoes, and plans to play Legos with Daddy right after school. Read more >> about "Go Outside and Play"
I have kind of a funny story for you. Yesterday, a service representative came to switch out our postage meter machine in the office. He replaced it with the same model, but now it’s just a little bit fresher and cleaner. As the rep was showing us a faster way to print international postage, he flipped up a little plastic flap to reveal a keyboard. I gasped. After almost two years of working at the office, I still did not know that machine had a keyboard! Our rep laughed and then showed me another trick to unjam the machine should an envelope get stuck. Good thing I enjoy learning new things!
