One of the most meaningful experiences in my life…
Every year I go to Winona, Minnesota…on the Mississippi. There I join colleagues from around North America mostly (but sometimes from Africa and China and !!). I teach in the masters program in Philanthropy and Development at Saint Mary’s University.
And every year, I write a series of blogs called Notes From My Dorm Room. I’ve just returned from SMUMN and I have so much to tell you!!!
A testimonial – with a picture of Mrs. Frizzle – from Andrea, Cohort 25. Now sitting on my self with the megaphone and bell given to me by Cohort 25 last year.
“To our FEARLESS Leader, Ms. Frizzle” better known as Simone Joyaux. She somehow managed the chaos on our “Magical School Bus” ride. She calmed us, she challenged us, and most importantly, she taught us. Her lessons far extend the classroom. She challenged us to be better and do beter. She gave us permission to say “But WHY?” and that not only is it ok to stand up for others, it is expected.
