Thank you so much for the encouragement. I LOVE Israel and need to get back there some day soon. I also teach children who face a great many difficulties and appreciated how your students expressed hope for Israel through their artwork.
Yes, Shalom Marsha I remember you. I did not know about this Ning and just recently Andrea told me about it and I decide to join. I'm also a member of Classroom 2.0. I think this is such a wonderful time for students to learn with the 21st C technology tools. I feel I am a student myself in many ways and I just enjoy so much discovering new things everyday. I think I was born three decades early! Anyway I am still in Jewish Education and I do keep a blog where I tell about my experiences in the classroom. I use Tech4learning a lot in my afternoon classes (Religious School) and I will be posting samples of my student's works.

My mother is doing better. It will take her about 13 months to be "completely" recovered. We don't know exactly what "completely" is. BUT- she is back at work teaching blind children and she is more independent than we had dreamed she would be by now. Thanks for your prayers and kindness. Your movies are very good. I loved the "Marsha's Story"!
Thank you for continuing to "Share Your Stories" with the community. I'm a huge fan of the Global Family concept and it's great to see the vision you share with your students. Looking forward to seeing more in the future!
