Hello and welcome to a place of exploration, and discovery. I firmly believe that the learning process can and should be a painless and joyous endeavor filled with excitement and adventure. For that purpose I began this site to share some thoughts and ideas that free students, and empower them to take control of their minds so that they can harness their natural curiosity and creativity! (I also just reflect on stuff)

A theory of brain usage from a guidance counselor’s perspective  Learning spaces are always a balance between students taking “in” information and students transferring information already “in” outwards through some action.  A standard example would be a student listening to his teacher (input) and a student writing a creative essay (output).  In general schools tend […]

Learning Magellans

My favorite characterization of a learner has always been in the form of an explorer.  Explorers are self-directed and motivated, take risks, yearn for discovery, and are fueled by the unknown.  They seek to make sense of the world for themselves and then for others.  From an early age my greatest motivation to learn has […]

worthwhile connections

I have never been one for super sappy, “this is what makes it worth it” stories about education, but I must admit there is something extremely powerful, gripping, and satisfying when a student reaches out to you on their own accord in order to maintain a connection, after they are no longer under your care.  My […]

late night sparks

I find that when I am most tired my brain seems to act the most divergently.  It is almost as if the neural signals get lost, which either results in clicking send on a terribly misspelled and awkward email to my boss intended for my mother asking her to fix my favorite boxers, or writing […]
