I collect books about baseball, religion, literature, and medieval history. Many books I have are autographed copies by famous scientists, actors, poets and sports figures including Jane Goodall, Jim Barnes (Native-American poet), James Tate (Pulitzer Prize winning poet), Kirk Douglas, and Buck O’Neill (former Negro Leagues manager). Theoretical physics including the “string theory” has caught my imagination lately. I enjoy thinking about things that most people never bother with whether its theology, physics, morality, or cryptozoology. Our culture now tries to crush the our innate originality and creativity. As teachers we must not betray our students to this juggernaut of standards, high-stakes testing, and mediocrity. The wisdom of other cultures can save us. I see immigration as a stimulating and healthy force in our culture. I believe the following: “You cannot begin to appreciate another culture unless you can see beauty in it. Our goal as teachers is to help our students see this beauty in other cultures as well as in our own.”
