Show and Tell

Welcome to my world!

Some months ago I commissioned an illustrator to create these images which were inspired by modified report card comments I have written over the years. Rather than share the texts which brought these pictures to life, I prefer to let the images speak (mostly) for themselves.

I like words. But I’m trying to understand visuals better. How do images inform and reach us? What might images evoke that words cannot? When I study these images I am reminded that they reflect my perspective as the teacher, not that of my students. These pictures reflect my adult interpretation of what I observe. It makes me curious about what my students might discover in these same images.
