The tremendous gift of Albert Cullum:

The above link is just a summary of the complete documentary.

I just watched the entire documentary "A Touch of Greatness" and all I can say is I cycled several times between tearing up and bawling uncontrollably. I honestly feel a part of my "little girl lost", that was conditioned out of me through my own school experiences, was regained by viewing this documentary.

Albert Cullum "got it". He understood how to connect with children and bring out the best in each individual child because he instinctively knew each child is an individual who also wants to belong. He also understood chindren learn best through play and interaction.

Seriously, if you get the chance, watch this documentary. It may make you wonder if any issue you child may be having is with your child... ...or if the way your child is being taught may actually be the underlying issue.

"The Saddest Thing Is This Won't Be Breaking News"

Thom plus logo As the world burns, and more and more fossil fuels are being used every day planet-wide, atmospheric carbon dioxide levels passed 416 ppm this week at the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii. In the 300,000 years since the emergence of modern humans, carbon dioxide levels have never been this high.
