Video: The Educator's Journey

As educators, we believe that our hope, vision, and desire are deeply rooted in who we are as human beings. As humans, we share a capacity for learning with almost all living beings, but we are far more unique in our capacity for educating.

The great psychoanalyst Erik Erikson called us the “teaching species” that pass on, through generations, the accumulated wisdom of our collective experience.

The relationship between parent and child is the primal educational relationship and forms the model from which other forms of education have evolved. As educators, we carry with us the spirit of unconditional love and selfless giving that characterizes that primal relationship.
