"Be the change that you want to see in the world."  M. K. Gandhi "

In my professional opinion, the face of education has changed such, that it is no longer imperative to be a source and distributor of vast amounts of knowledge.  Educators should no longer be the "sage on the stage." I have always wanted my students to UNDERSTAND science and not just memorize science facts.  It is more important to our students and their future lives that we teach them how and where to acquire the knowledge and information they will need, so they can become informed and responsible contributors to the global society.
