Below are some words of wisdom – think about each of them/reflect on them 🙂 These are the quotes that are good to the soul.

“The best kind of play costs nothing and really only has one main requirement — imagination.” – Deborah Leong

  1. ROCK ON DR. SEUSS!!! My personal favorite! This is a great quote to have at the top of the memory bank as we strive to up the “anty” as we create more anti-bias environments in our field! Thanks for making me smile!

  2. Thank you for sharing Raymond Hernandez’s quote. I would like to think that if we each strive to make a difference in our own community, then we can change the world.

  3. Hi Amy! I just wanted to take a moment to say “thanks” for sharing your knowledge and yourself during this class. I have really enjoyed getting to know you and the passion behind what you do.
