Back to School

The mind is not a vessel to be filled, but a fire to be ignited.” ~ Plutarch

I've mentioned before that I am an educator.  I adore my career as an art historian.  It is precisely what I was meant to do.  I am always challenged, constantly learning, and immersed in a field that never ceases to delight me. 

Even though I teach adults and not kindergarteners (though some of my students do conduct themselves as the latter and not the former), I find myself getting especially excited for the "first day of school."  My "first days" happen every new semester, but there is an extra special energy in the air come August.  
I fancy myself a Katharine Watson (Julia Roberts) in Mona Lisa Smile kind of art history teacher.
