Pass Creek School, a one-room north of Belgrade, MT, is one of the special ones. Sidney Rider, the teacher, did something right with these kids. We had the most pleasant time on Friday, March 2, when four of the older kids helped me bring the art in. At some schools you can just feel how the students know how to be good helpers, good listeners, and hard workers. Marla Goodman, the artist who painted "Swing Set Fire," came to visit from Bozeman that day. Her blog post on the experience, found here, nicely captures our pleasant afternoon.
Better yet, ever wonder what we talk about when visiting a school? Marla took this video of my talk at Pass Creek, made extra special for the very cute kids.
