Hand the Light of Knowledge with Care and Wisdom (Anonymous)
Now is the time to shift from education as transmission of knowledge to instead value the child’s unique gifts from within. Inspire interest and love of learning. Work from pertinent questions, cultivate creativity, develop presentation skills, encourage sharing with peers and parents. Connect to our soulful selves—heart, mind, body, spirit— and prepare pathways of purpose throughout life.
