"Experience is a hard teacher because she gives the test first, the lesson after."

"When we see and hear, and then act on what we learn, we internalize a lesson and it sticks."

"My first career was as a school science teacher in Philadelphia. Those who know me know of my passion for learning. What I found through all my education and the process of educating others, was that very few lessons really stuck unless they were combined with some experience, such as a lab experiment."
