Teach me and I will remember.
Involve me and I learn.
- Benjamin Franklin
This post is dedicated to all my NEH Benjamin Franklin Buddies! I am sending you new school clothing virtually (oh how I wish).
I first learned more about Ben and his amazing life while attending a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Seminar in 2011. Before this experience (which I will tell more stories of), I had very little understanding of the truly incredible life led by Benjamin Franklin. I love this quote by him, because as a teacher, it is a great inspiration for us as we begin a new school year.
Involve your children and they will learn! Have a great year!!!
