I have taught English for over 25 years. In addition to providing the most meaningful learning experience possible for students, I have taken on the mission of asking questions about how our schools can best serve our students, their families, and communities.
Academic instruction represents merely one component of a school’s work. Young people also require an understanding of their importance to a healthy social environment, a productive workplace, a sound democracy, and a society that promotes the well-being of all of its members.
As our children learn and grow, they need to develop constructive interests and pastimes. They need an understanding of what enables fulfillment. Without these critical capacities, we cannot expect them to work together to build meaningful lives, careers, and communities.

Very True Paul. Thanks for sharing
My pleasure—good to hear from you!
I have great admiration for teachers, not only because I came from a family of teachers but because I know they contribute a lot to society. I wrote a tribute for them last Teachers’ Day.
Amen, Paul! I worry so much about the students who have trouble articulating their interests – other than video games. Your words ring true.
