“Fish Don’t Climb Trees” Interview on CJSF 90.1FM

The Imagination in Education Research Group at Simon Fraser University held an International Conference in July.

Elaine Harder, aka Annie Roach, an SFU Graduate Student in Arts Education is the Radio Host / Producer of “The Arts Edge”. She attended my session, “Fish Don’t Climb Trees”.

She was interested in how I came to be a Davis Facilitator, and how dyslexia impacted my life, and that of my son. The interview went on to cover the change in our education system that would allow all children entering school an equal opportunity to learn.

North Vancouver School Board’s District wide Professional Development Day

Thank you to all the wonderful teachers who came to my session at the North Vancouver School Board’s District wide Professional Development Day today.   It was a thrill and a privilege to be asked, and to be able to present information that I hope will help them to reach the children who appear to be learning challenged.  When a teacher comes up to you at the end of the event and says “you really made me think” its all worth it !

This is very exciting to listen to not only because Dan Pink is well respected, but also because his information aligns with Ron Davis’ philosophy and methods – especially Autonomy and Mastery – enjoy !
