Photog (and Eagle Scout) Luke Sharrett leaving NY Times . . .

August 13, 2010

Go see the photos.  Seriously.  “The Capital was his classroom”, by David Dunlap.

Doubtless, there are other accomplished photojournalists in Washington who have won an Eagle Scout medal with bronze palm. Luke Sharrett of The Times may be the only one who earned his just six years ago.

And he is almost certainly the only photographer who’ll be leaving the D.C. press corps on Friday to start his junior year in college.

“Why are you doing that?” President Obama asked him as Air Force One was taking off the other day.

Dunlap does not say whether Sharrett earned the Photography Merit Badge.  Anyone know?


Baptism by fire, and the fire this time

August 8, 2008

New teachers, teachers taking on new subjects or major curriculum redesigns, and teachers trying to keep up may find this list useful: Baptism by Fire: 100 Essential Tips and Resources for Student Teachers.

It features an extensive list of ideas, suggestions, and useful on-line resources and ideas from the blog Smart Teaching.org.

I confess, I was unaware of Smart Teaching.org until Kelly Sonora contacted me from the organization.  What do you think, Dear Reader:  Useful stuff?
