Founding is a simple truth which adults find difficult to comprehend, because of a hardening of one's heart. Children who delight in fantasy, imagination, and less complex issues and dogmas bring joy to us who are parents and teachers. We should listen and participate with them. This web site is dedicated to the child in all of us and the teacher we would all hope to be.
