This information is based on faith.

This website, indeed all my work in education, is dedicated to my parents, my siblings and my lady love.  If it weren't for Mom and Dad, who let me tinker, pretend and be a child, my sisters and brothers, who guided that play and encouraged my participation, and the wonderful woman who loves me even when it isn't easy, none of this would have been possible.  Without them, I wouldn't have the imagination, curiosity and love for learning that's required of a teacher.  

May my parents have the rest that they so greatly deserve; my brothers and sisters have the happiness that they have bestowed on me, and may the most perfect woman have reason to continue to laugh so well and hum so sweetly when she thinks I can't hear.

Thank you all for so much.


“In an era of parental paranoia, lawsuit mania and testing frenzy, we are failing to inspire our children's curiosity, creativity, and imagination.  We are denying them opportunities to tinker, discover, and explore - in short, to play."

“Imagination is more important than knowledge.  For knowledge is limited to all we now know and understand, while imagination embraces the entire world, and all there ever will be to know and understand.”
             Albert Einstein (1879 - 1955)
