The Pursuit of Life’s Purpose | Louise Gilbert
Louise Gilbert is regarded as an innovator and has broadened the parameters of education with her cutting edge, holistic approach to teaching and learning. She asks big questions – ones that at this time in human history are critical. What is a real education? What is it we really want for our children? For our educators? Ourselves? For our loved ones? And ultimately, for humanity?
She says, “It’s really very simple. Education is the business of human development, first and foremost. We must remember that we are developing human beings here. Helping them to discover themselves, their gifts, their passions, what they want to share with the world, who they truly are. Then everything else will fall into place. Students will be happier emotionally, they’ll do well academically, teachers will have less behavioral issues in class, less stress and ultimately our future generations will be prepared – emotionally, intellectually, spiritually – for overcoming the great challenges of our time.”
