Blogging my evolution as an artistic art educator - An art-based experience...
Go to the mattresses... I have to admit it (sorry all of you Godfather fans out there), but the first time I heard this phrase was while watching the movie You've Got Mail. Tom Hanks' character advises Meg Ryan's character, through anonymous instant messaging to, "Go to the mattresses", in order to save her business. (If you are interested in the possible origins of this phrase, as I was, check out this LINK.)
I have someone, in particular, right now who is my White Night. This person is "going to the mattresses" for me, and for my job. I am blessed and grateful for this person, and honored that all of my hard work has not gone unnoticed. (Please keep your fingers crossed with me... Go White Knight! My students deserve a hero, and so do I! Let's show our kids that we really are all about kids!)
PS... Just realized, I have another couple of people doing everything they can for me, and I thank them too! (Here's to keeping positive, and to others doing the right thing for my students too!)
In addition, I would be horribly remiss in not extending my undying gratitude to those of you who have been here for me, and who have helped me accomplish so much... I could not have finished my Culminating Project paper without the editorial expertise of my husband and my friend Ann... I would have been a dead duck!
And, I could not have even imagined getting through any of this without all of you... I am blessed!
Have an incredible weekend...
Safety, health, happiness, and peace... Pam
