  1. Dear David and Lee,
    Thanks for the inspirational words. I have read your blogs a few times and I feel even more motivated to make a difference.

  2. As a teacher of many years with many age groups and settings, it’s good to know that there are people like David and Lee out there working at putting the fun back into learning. So often education becomes a series of hoops for teachers and pupils to jump through, and we can all too easily lose sight of the real purpose of teaching :- inspiring young minds.
    I can vouch for the power of David’s methods. He inspired my son to go into the profession (despite all my counter arguments) because he saw what a fun place the classroom could be, and wanted to share the “buzz” of helping children learn and develop as human beings. Yes it can be stressful…but never boring.
    Trust this man.

  3. I am requesting permission to use your Using Bloom’s Taxonomy in the Classroom blog post form May 22, 2011 as a component of a 5 day Professional Development course on facilitation techniques for Human Intelligence Instructors at Fort Huachuca, AZ.
