"When we begin to value who children are (not just what we want them to be), a shift happens in the way we think about learning and teaching.

   "Our jobs become more engaging and fulfilling, and we begin to envision a larger purpose for our profession.”

 "Never forget, children are our elders in universe time. They have come into a more complete, more evolved universe than you will  ever understand,

except through their eyes."

~ Buckminster Fuller
