My transformation as a New Mexican has made me realize that there is nothing in Vermont that can emulate the roasting green chile. Only here do I truly know what it is like to feel dry in a semi arid plateau, at altitude, four weeks without a sprinkle of rain. For this physical classroom I am grateful. My desert life seemed distant from Hurricane Sandy but the virtual world of Twitter kept me in touch with friends frantically scrambling out of flood zones and assured my daughter that Flatdaddy was safely stranded in the Cleveland airport as evidenced by Facetime chats.
In the storms that face education today it is important for teachers and students to embrace the escapism of the virtual world, to venture outside the normal but to return to that classroom with heightened senses and make something real of it.
