Best educational topics I want to help parents and even grandparents with!



My goal here is to help parents 1 child at a time! As a prelude I would like to introduce you to some educational topics as well as The Top 5 Leaders in education.

How many of these incredible people do you know?

I’m going to share what in my opinion are the top leaders in education that really changed my life for the better. I studied about them during my educational journey . “ Over the years, there have been many outstanding teachers in the history of the USA. They worked to make the world a better place by improving the educational system and teaching practices. Their contribution changed the whole perception of education and shaped our society. Here are famous educators who have made a difference in the world.”

Leader #2: Bill Nye


“Technically speaking, Bill Nye isn’t a certified instructor, but for nearly 30 years, the mechanical engineer has spent his days educating audiences on all things science. From his popular series Bill Nye, the Science Guy to StarTalk and his many talks, debates, and presentations, Nye has led thousands of curious minds to the fascinating world of science. If that weren’t enough, he’s also served as an honorary Rhodes Class of ’56 guest professor for lucky students at Cornell University.” You can learn more at http://Bill Nye

Leader #3: Marva Collins

“In 1975, after working as a substitute teacher for 14 years, Marva Collins, frustrated by the lack of opportunities for African American students, opened the Westside Preparatory School on her home’s second floor. The school welcomed students who struggled in traditional classrooms and focused on phonics, math, and reading (later called the “Collins Method”) and was highly successful, helping some of the most marginalized students graduate. Collins was recognized globally for her work before her death in 2015. Marva Collins was a Chicago schoolteacher who strives to do her best to educate her students. However, she grew frustrated by the boundaries imposed on her methods by a failing public school system. Confronted by stubborn colleagues and a reproachful principal, Collins boldly decided to go it alone. Using her own funds, she created a prep school for inner-city students that she felt they deserved.” ( taken from a Google search ) You can learn more about this person at http://The Washington Post


Leader #4: Marie Montessori

Maria Montessori was the first female doctor in Italy and later developed the Montessori educational system still used throughout the world today. “After earning her doctorate, Montessori worked as a medical school instructor, but after spending years researching and studying child development, she moved into education and created a prepared teaching program for kids (later known as the Montessori method) that allowed for a child-led learning environment.” You can learn more about this person here http://Marie Montessori AND OF COURSE MY PERSONAL FAVORITE IS HOWARD GARDNER

http://Howard Gardner Multiple intelligences is a theory first introduced by Harvard developmental psychologist Howard Gardner in 1983 that suggests human intelligence can be differentiated into eight modalities: Visual-spatial, verbal-linguistic, musical-rhythmic, logical-mathematical, interpersonal, intrapersonal, naturalistic and bodily- …a theory I introduced to my students when I was a teacher. According to Fabrizio Pallazari @DrHowardGardner’s original work has persuaded people around the world that “we are all intelligent in different ways”, based on several values. It has brought many positive changes and benefits in the educational systems of different countries. #MItheory
