About Me

"If we teach today’s students as we did yesterday’s, we are robbing them of tomorrow." - John Dewey

"We can, whenever and wherever we choose, successfully teach all children whose schooling is of interest to us.  We already know more than we need in order to do this.  Whether we do it must finally depend on how we feel about the fact we haven't so far." - Ronald Edmonds
