April Reflections: Seeing Possibilities

Kathie Foster, Superintendent

One of my all-time favorite books is Lewis Carroll’s Alice’s Adventures  in Wonderland.  It is a magical and timeless tale about logic, word play, and growing up.  And in Alice’s words, “a moral if you can find it.” The passage below captures Alice’s initial meeting with the White Queen.

The White Queen asks Alice, “How old are you?”
Alice responds, “I am seven and a half exactly.”
The White Queen replies, “You needn’t say exactly.  I can believe it without that.  Now, I’ll give you something to believe.  I am 101, 5 months and one day.”

Alice exclaims, “I can’t believe that.”
The White Queen says, “Can’t you? Try again!  Draw a long breath and shut your eyes.”

Alice sighs as she says, “There’s no use trying.  One can’t believe impossible things.”
The White Queen states, “I daresay you haven’t had much practice.  When I was your age, I always did it for half an hour.  Why, sometimes I’ve believed as many as six impossible things before breakfast.”

We, in education, can appreciate the White Queen’s words for we, too, have much practice in believing many impossible things before breakfast. Read more...
