Seeing Inside the Mind (Book 2 of the four book publication Minds in Bloom)

About Glenn Fieber

Teaching has taken me around the world—literally and philosophically. After I retired from Kamloops, B.C. in 1999, I taught 7 more years in China. China was different; her differences intrigued me. I tried to learn the language and culture: I studied tai qi and calligraphy; I wrote a history of China’s first emperor, the infamous Qin (Emperor of Stone).

When I was a kid, most of my friends were bigger and stronger; I learned to share. In education—and in life—we need to share more. I have taught teachers in Canada, China and Korea and given countless workshops about teaching because I believe that teaching is important: teachers create the future; they can change lives.

I began my career as a romantic idealist in Grand Forks, B.C. in the 60s. It was the time of a great social upheaval, when we all believed in dreams…then were forced to watch them unfold.

Today, I am still at it, whatever it is. My idealism has been tempered by reality, but I am perhaps even more optimistic: whenever I walk into a classroom, I still get goosebumps.
