This week’s Tile Tales goes out to all the Teachers, TA’s, Nursery Assistants and others who dedicate their lives to helping our little ones shine!
I think most of us have had a teacher we really admired. I’ve been lucky in my educational journey to have a few, and to them, I am so grateful. A teacher that you click with can truly change your educational journey. Thank you to you all.
Today’s tale was made with the Love Kit
Want to play along?
I love playing around with the magnetic poetry blocks. I’m no poetry writer so I prefer to create a short story of sorts. The kits can be found here (and they are free):
I was pleased to meet Einstein and learn of his story He started as a patents clerk, before finding his glory He published his General Theory of Relativity But it took a solar eclipse to remove the science communities negativity,
Next I found Curie, and her life’s situation Poland limited females, with no access to higher education Yet still she triumphed, graduating top of her class Winning Two Nobel Prizes, Oh what a lass!
Then I met Tesla, what an interesting chap Arrived in New York with just the clothes on his back An alternating motor was his brilliant design Despite Edison’s attempt to thwart this brilliant mind.
Benjamin Franklin ran away at just seventeen With no formal education or financial means His genius for business soon made him rich Yet his passion for fellow man is what made him tick!
So how did I find all these geniuses indeed? I went to the library and started to read. Here you have access to the world’s greatest minds Best of all, it won’t cost you a dime!

Education can be one of life’s greatest gifts. Yet, we all learn by different ways and means and a standard exam cannot capture one’s intelligence, drive or brilliance. In fact, hands-on training can often be much more meaningful to an employer. I think there is a place for both in society. Equally, I love a success story, especially from an underdog and history has so many wonderful examples.
