Shelly's YL ESL/EFL/ELL Carnival

Thank you, Shelly, for including one of my posts in this great carnival. I feel really honoured to be mentioned amongst such renowned YL educators.

I always feel YL teaching ideas swirl around in my head, sometimes difficult to keep up with them. They tend to be pushy and almost each and every one of them wants to be the one to be tried out, the one to be posted about, the one to be shouted out... Wish I had ten YL groups, ten hands with ten computers glued to them and the mental space to be able to write them down whenever they come to me. I trouble is that I don't have any of these. So all I'm left with are my feelings of 'I haven't written about this either', lots of resentfulness towards my own limits in time, space and energy.

You know, I keep writing about education, and how important kids are. Now, I have my own kids too, and my own groups of kids that I teach too. The questions that keep waking me up are like: "Now you keep babbling on about educating kids, paying more attention to THEM, and at the same time, you spend most of the time writing ABOUT them." Oh, well, it looks like I've got something to work on there.

So that is why, Shelly, I am soooo thankful to you that you have inlcuded me even in your slideshow! You have helped me out for now. You, life-saviour :-)!

Though, I will still have to work out somehow the issue I have. Any suggestions, advice, shouts, warning, questions that lead me to the right solutions more than welcome!
