January Education Newsletter

By Vicki Zakrzewski | January 15, 2013 | 0 comments

Happy New Year! Registration for our first annual Summer Institute for Educators is now open! Click here for more information.

This month, I explored the science behind spiritual development and what it might mean for education.

You may also enjoy reading how teachers can renew their passion for teaching.

Finally—I want to hear from you! All students, teachers, and administrators are invited to submit stories, poems, and pictures on the theme of love in education—some of which will be featured on the Greater Good Education website in February. Please send your entries no later than January 31st to: ggsceducation@berkeley.edu.

Wishing you a peaceful new year.

Warmly,

Vicki Zakrzewski, Ph.D.
Education Director, Greater Good Science Center
