  1. I have bumped into something for 16 years in education- it is invisible… It even shows up in the media.(more later) I went into teaching because that was the target audience I cared about more than any- I wanted that next generation to be inspired. I bumped into an environment with invisible foes. I taught 1st grade and loved it. Teachers began “hating on me”. This term adultcentrism is what I bumped into. It is like in the Sound of Music… the admiral is designing and running schools when we need more Marias. I want to dialogue some more with you- I am pursuing a doctorate and want to conduct research on this inspiration- this joy- and what happens to a school that learns how to develop these is kids.
