About this book


I have no doubt that many of you who read this book will be captivated by it, just as I have been captivated. This book is woven through evocative stories told by masterful educators who came together to explore the meanings of learning, teaching, and life. For those who have read Speaking of Teaching, it is not a surprise to hear, again, the profoundly touching, humane, and imaginative voices of these authors. This book draws me in, touches my heart, and refreshes my mind. —Hongyu Wang, Professor, Oklahoma State University, Tulsa, OK, US The authors invite us to join them in asking, “What else can learning be?” What else indeed? What is beyond the recipes, rubrics, formulas, and credentials of contemporary education? Deep in the heart of their own personal stories, told and untold, spoken and unspoken, the authors search and tell. With an artful admixture of stories, poems, artwork, and reflections, this book is a rare opportunity to listen in on an eight-year extended conversation amongst these gifted educators as they become increasingly present in their learning journeys. —Arden Henley, Professor and Principal, Canadian Programs, City University of Seattle, Vancouver, BC, Canada
