Teacher of the Year

I was sitting in the fiction section at the library the other day, reading page 12,573,477 of Atlas Shrugged, and I overheard about 5 minutes of a tutoring session wherein the tutor discussed the following topics:

Biblical disasters
The Wright Brothers
Dirigibles
The Smithsonian
Amber harvested in Denmark and Puerto Rico
Hottentots

Hottentots! Awesome.

I'm reading Heidi right now, and Heidi and Peter totally had a little conversation of Hottentots in my reading from today.

I had never heard of Hottentots until I read your blog. I immediately googled it to find out what it meant. This is just another example of how truly educational your blog is. Thank you, Rachel, for broadening my horizons.
