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.


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 taught for 15 years in a wonderful hybrid school. My dissertation topic and research were how certain teachers experience becoming who teachers. In teaching and leanring, I am a boundary-crosser who understands moving ahead is a leap of faith. Teaching is a calling and vocation to express who I am as a person. Currently, I am waiting and listening to what calls me next. I am an educator, phenomenologist, scholar, boundary-crosser, published poet, author, parent, grandparent, and spouse.

  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.
