    I love Teacher Tom! He has inspired us in so many ways. Three years ago we threw out the tried and true annual “play” and moved to the children creating their own. Instead of performing it live, we make a movie and celebrate with a premiere for the families, red carpet and all. Not only does the story, costumes and crazy plot come from the children, but they get the joy of watching their work with their families. They are the stats and they get to see the result of their hard work (and playfulness).

      Oops. They are the stars. 🙂

    2. That’s a great idea Marie – also interesting as technology becomes so much more accessible that children can do some of the technical pieces on their own.
