September Finds

The Aspen Times Weekly,  9/6/2008, in a long (and good) article by Katie Redding, Minding the Gap, the opening sentences contain a teacher Searing:

ASPEN — In Dee Searing’s writing class at Aspen Elementary School, nobody has to sit in their seats. And students never have to write about what they did on their summer vacation.  (emphasis added)

Instead, they’re allowed to write about cartoons and adventures, to draw pictures before they write, and to lie on a bright pastel rug if it helps them come up with better words.   (Google for the rest of the article)

Dee Searing is also mentioned as the ‘elementary school’s writing specialist’ in an other piece by Ms Redding on Sept 18, 2008
