Powerful Quote #47 : Education

These are two excellent questions. Neither one asks about information or knowledge. They both suggest there is a genius in us that is deeper than that. I am not sure we teach it per se, but we can certainly be role models and offer paths to this type of learning that currently do not exist in our educational system.

PROPEL STEPS

When our educational content do not have love, compassion,  morality and wisdom, what else then we are teaching the kids? What is the use of creating any genius without these virtues?

About ivonprefontaine

I completed a PhD at Gonzaga University in Spokane, WA. Previously, I taught for 20 years and spent the last 14 years teaching in an incrediable hybrid school setting. My dissertation topic and research were how teachers experience becoming who teachers, as human subjects. For me, teaching is a calling and vocation that allows me to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what will call me. We have begun a small consulting and leadership firm called Rocky River Leadership & Consulting Ltd.

  1. Not just for teaching kids, but teaching anyone. No misanthrope should ever be given responsibility for guiding the learning of any student.

    • I agree. In today’s day and age, learning and teaching need to be two sides of the same coin. It was amazing how often children taught me something in the classroom. Teachers who learn serve as role models for the most important skill of our time: life long learning.
