If people did not do silly things, nothing intelligent would ever get done. — Ludwig Wittgenstein

Define: Patience – ;)

… good-natured tolerance of delay or incompetence (web definition)

… the quality of being patient, as the bearing of provocation, annoyance, misfortune, or pain, without complaint, loss of temper, irritation, or the like. … (dictionary reference online)

Tanya’s definition…

Phone conversation with a, um, loved one, or, um, parent, that requires a new activity or task to be taught by one party and learned by the other.

Yup, I helped my mom set up a blog today. She sells framed photographs of photos she has taken. Either of nature, landscape, the sky, her garden, animals OR of other people’s loved ones, grads, grandparents, babies, weddings OR she even frames photos that other people have captured and want enlarged and framed in a good quality format.

As a teacher we must practice patients in our classrooms all the time. I like to practice with my mom outside of class time, now and then, as this makes the students that much more bearable. Just kidding mom 😉

Oh and she also ‘tweets’ now.

Check out her new blog at: tajoma.wordpress.com

and follow her at dan4shar

She is still tweaking it, but she has a good start for sure.

Good work today Ma!

  1. I love your blogs, Tanya. They’re so honest and transparent. These same qualities are what draws students to you in your program. It was a huge leap to visit a student struggling with transition, and I’ll bet he’ll never forget that visit. And how nice that you showed the older generation (tee hee, Tanya’s mom) how to use that new-fangled computer. Keep up the writing. It’s a lot of fun, and at the same time, reflective.

    • Thanks Todd. Honesty is my strength I guess. I will keep it up whenever something real persists and, to me, is worth sharing.
