May is an amazing month. Not just because both my birthday and anniversary are in May, but because lots of my favorite flowers are in full bloom this time of the year. Do you have stories of why certain flowers are your favorites? Here are some of mine.
Month: May 2014
Just before we went on our winter break last year, I received a nicely wrapped box from one of my senior Advanced Placement Calculus students. When I opened it at home on Christmas Eve (yes, we Europeans don’t open presents in the morning), to my big surprise I found a spring form cake pan in the box together with spatulas and her family’s recipe for a tart!
I find it amazing that sometimes when I read something it is so relevant and perfectly timed to what is happening in my life. This school year, for the first time in my long teaching career, I teach only seniors. One hundred and ten of them. I have only eight more school days with this group of talented young people. What do I tell them as my farewell?
This year, our tulips are mostly done giving space to other flowers to shine. Here is to the national flower of Turkey.
