My teaching partner, Karen Montanaro, a solo performer who does with dance-and-mime what I do with music-and-theater, sent me this email today:
“I got the most amazing group of letters-from-students (fifth graders) the other day. One kid wrote: ‘You also taught us about teamwork and if you put your mind to something you can accomplishit.’ … Hallelujah, I think it’s time for me to start teaching THAT lesson!”
Amen! I’ll sign up for that class right now!
A mutual friend, Stephen Voltz, of eepybird.com (the “Mentos and Coke” folks) immortalized the new motto graphically (above), thus spontaneously engaging in more accomplishit teamwork.
