Having been a mother/grandmother/great-grandmother/teacher for over 50 years a lot of words spoken by children have gone in one ear and out the other. Yet I never cease to be amaze.

courteous in his world. Dubai, UAE 2015
As I sat the kindergartners every day for the last 5 years of my career I learned I could not even possibly guess what was going on inside all those minds. I only got a small glimpse when I asked the simple question, "What do YOU know?" It was amazing the answers that came, all different, as I went around the circle of the children seated before me.
If you were to ask me that question today my answer would be,
"Good manners never go out of style." I think we are lifted up by the small courtesies that make up an ordinary day.So today I am asking you, "what do YOU know?"
Have a wonderful day!
