What does it mean to educate? to be educated? to teach? to learn?

I am on a pathway of more than three decades within the education system as a learner, a teacher, a school leader, a consultant. You’d think the answers to those questions would be sorted out by now, but they are not. The world is more complicated, yet everyone still has their own agendas when it comes to education.

This is a space for personal reflection on the answers to those questions, within the world of social media. I invite comments as I explore my thoughts in the online realm.

My Philosophy? Summed up, it’s this:
Education is, and should be, joy-filled. The joy of learning, of teaching, of interacting with young people, of interacting with adult learners – staff and students.

Joyful. Joy-filled. Joyous.
