Mr. David Hoh
Ready for class? In my classes, sixth graders become skillful writers and enthusiastic, thoughtful readers. The links to the left will connect students and parents to resources and information that should be useful in my classes.
This might be the most important link:
Questions, complaints, compliments are welcome.
Here are a few of my favorite quotations to give you an idea who I am and what I care about.
"Art is a lie that makes us see the truth." -- Picasso (He may have been talking about painting; I'm thinking about writing.)
"The will to win means nothing without the will to prepare." -- Kenyan marathon runner Jumma Ikanga (He was talking about running, but it applies to success in school and in work, too.)
"There is no duty we so much underrate as the duty of being happy." -- Robert Louis Stevenson (So what does it mean to be happy, and why does he call it a duty? Now there's something to think about.)
"You better start swimmin' or you'll sink like a stone, for the times they are a-changin'." Bob Dylan (Lots of changes are coming to Logan Elementary School this year. Start swimming!)
The next two are related, and have a lot to do with being readers and listeners:
"We don't see things the way they are...we see things the way we are." The Talmud
"What you see and hear depends a good deal on where you are standing. It also depends on what sort of person you are." C.S. Lewis, in The Magician's Nephew
