The Evolution of Learning

The way we, as humans, learn seems constantly in flux. Not long ago, it was common for schoolrooms to host kindergartners through twelfth-graders alike. Even in the 1950s, there existed singular schoolrooms for children of all ages.

More recently, children grew up with different teachers each year, and if you had a background similar to myself, you might have been in a different building for each grade as well.

Lost in Conversation

Finding Your Passion

Let's face it - we've all been there before, enjoying our time hanging out with a group of well-respected peers and then the conversation goes off on a tangent about a topic we know nothing about.
