Teaching an Old Dog New Tricks

Dear Reader:

This old dog is in the process of telling her old desk top-computer good-bye after a-decade and switching to a Cromebook! Wish me luck! 🤣

Today I will start shopping and keep you updated on this challenging transition for this old gal-am sure it will provide plenty of laughs! 🤣

I am in Mt Pleasant this weekend for grandchildren’s ball games and Lachlan’s birthday ! 🎈

I am trying as fast as I can to return to Chapel of Hope Stories with new thoughts to share about life and its on-going challenges!

Let’s keep smiling and looking on the sunny side of the street!

So until tomorrow everyone stay warm as old man winter makes a quick return! Thank you for your patience!

“Today is my favorite day”

About Becky Dingle

I was born a Tarheel but ended up a Sandlapper. My grandparents were cotton farmers in Laurens, South Carolina and it was in my grandmother’s house that my love of storytelling began beside an old Franklin stove. When I graduated from Laurens High School, I attended Erskine College (Due West of what?) and would later get my Masters Degree in Education/Social Studies from Charleston Southern. I am presently an adjunct professor/clinical supervisor at CSU and have also taught at the College of Charleston. For 28 years I taught Social Studies through storytelling. My philosophy matched Rudyard Kipling’s quote: “If history were taught in the form of stories, it would never be forgotten.” Today I still spread this message through workshops and presentations throughout the state. The secret of success in teaching social studies is always in the story. I want to keep learning and being surprised by life…it is the greatest teacher. Like Kermit said, “When you’re green you grow, when you’re ripe you rot.”

  2. Good luck, Becky. I just bought a new Samsung S7 two-in-one for traveling this year (hope springs eternal). It is quite a chore, comparing and knowing what you want. My problem is that I like all of the bells and whistles, and Douglas has to remind me that I will never use them. Looking forward to receiving my new work companion on Monday.

      You are much more tech savvy than me friend! My problem is…I have done the same thing for so long on an old desk top computer…a decade…that learning all the new bells and whistles leaves me quite vulnerable. But that’s okay too…another part of life…changing and staying current is an important aspect of living a fulfilled life. Thanks for your encouragement!
