"Bear in mind that the wonderful things you learn in your schools are the work of many generations, produced by enthusiastic effort and infinite labor in every country of the world. All this is put into your hands as your inheritance in order that you may receive it, honor it, add to it, and one day faithfully hand it to your children. Thus do we mortals achieve immortality in the permanent things which we create in common." - Albert Einstein

A Child Inside A Scientist, A Scientist Inside A Child

These are slides of a presentation I gave to Filipino teachers in Maryland on 6 April 2013 at the Upper Marlboro Branch of Prince George's County Memorial Library System. This was one of the professional development meetings of the Association of Filipino Teachers of America (AFTA), Maryland chapter. It was my attempt to introduce to them the child inside this scientist so that they may see the scientist in the child that they teach inside a classroom.

  1. I was most impacted by the slide that showed the student who was proficient in math . . . but uninterested. That's the problem isn't it? Students are far more capable than we or they believe. Such is the basis of all my tutoring lessons.
