The Learning is Slow but Deeper

The Learning is Slow but Deeper A practitioner recently asked me, "Why can my 5 and 6 year olds use the social thinking vocabulary, but still not change their behavior? Does this mean that they can't really learn to change?" My response went something like this: All behavior change that is deep and more permanent doesn't happen ov...

Narnia Preserve

Still fighting to save this amazing oasis in the desert. For our kids, for our future.

Narnia Preserve See the video


It is with a heavy heart I must share... the property we had amazing plans for, is set for demolition next week. We fought hard to save the Narnia property, and the programs we had worked so hard to set up there. We have not found an investor that sees the beauty and value in the nature, or that we will never be able to duplicate what Narnia provides for anywhere close to the asking price or in the next 100 years. The strength and beauty of multi century trees cannot be replaced. Divine intervention is welcome at any time, or an investor with the vision to save this amazing forest in Phoenix...

How Society Kills Your Creativity, An Award-Winning Pixar-Like Short Film

How Society Kills Your Creativity, An Award-Winning Pixar-Like Short Film Modern society tells us to do well in school, work as hard as we can, and eventually teach our kids to do the same. It’s an endless cycle that doesn’t exactly leave much room for creativity. The same point great Ken Robinson made in the most famous TED speech 'How schools kill creativity.' This shor...

This is what happens to your brain when you stop exercising

Our kids go home dirty. And sometimes stinky. Our kids spend a large portion of the day moving, running, climbing, skating, riding, playing. In turn, the time they spend focusing on learning is that much more productive. For our students, learning gets easier.

Another amazing day. Observing and researching nature. And teaching a chicken about dinosaurs.

Kids Don’t Fail, Schools Fail Kids: Sir Ken Robinson on the ‘Learning Revolution’

"A huge misconception amongst adults, according to Robinson, is that kids don’t like to learn. On the contrary, “my conviction is that kids love to learn. That’s not the problem,” he shared. Rather, “it’s the construct of school” that beats a love to learn out of students, he says."

Busy day, feeding animals, collecting specimens, climbing, creating, communicating, balancing, reading, calculating, observing and much much more. Never a dull moment.
