    Thanks for the infusion of passion. Even though I work with young children every day, I am still amazed to see the passion that comes out when I release the reins a bit and set them on a path of exploration and discovery. It’s a shame that so much of our day is filled with mandated curriculum and big blocks of it at that.

    I could not agree with you more. It is my goal to get my students excited about what they are learning. They have taken me places and taught me many things through their enthusiasm.

    I believe that learning should be fun.
