Lunch Links

Lunch Links Friday: Calling all teachers!

Well, once again, we made it. Hope you’re enjoying a warm drink on this chilly but beautiful fall day.

Today’s Lunch Links starts off with a plug for a new feature NC Policy Watch has unveiled. We’re looking for teachers to tell their stories about what’s going on inside and outside of the classroom. You can head over to Your Soapbox and submit your story about the challenges you’re facing as well as your success stories, or you can give me a call at 919-861-1460 and tell us your story that way.

Speaking of teachers, I’ve seen this letter making the internet rounds this week. It’s from Albert Camus to a beloved teacher, written shortly after he won the Nobel Prize for Literature.

Take a moment to read Camus’ letter, in which he embraces his teacher with all of his heart.

Finally, y’all may know by now I’m a little weather-obsessed, so I’ve been scouring the net for images and videos of the possibly strongest-ever Super Typhoon Haiyan.

Prayers for all those in the Philippines who are confronting this impressive storm.

Happy weekend to all, and be sure to hug and thank a veteran.
