Hospitality and an Open Door
I have noticed that various themes follow me, and a current one is the need for open doors. Open doors represent hospitality, which is crucial in the classroom. When a teacher offers hospitality to students, he or she invites them into a learning community.
The photo is of a painting entitled, “Open Doors.” I purchased it from local artist Jessica Kovan. She painted it for display in conjunction with the play “Blue Door,” which was produced at the Williamston Theatre in September and October of 2010.
