From an early age, I've taken great pleasure in reading. I also enjoy listening to musicals and classical music. I have always been attracted to rivers, and they figure prominently in my dreams. I love to sit on a boulder with my feet in the water, gazing into the mysteries of swirling currents. I especially enjoy inner tubing on the Rogue River in Southern Oregon. Collecting jaspers and agates, taught me more about colors and forms. I have imagined what the early Greeks felt when they began to discover physical laws. I continue to delight in form, and am a problem solver at heart.

- Each One Must Shine: The Legacy of Vasily Sukhomlinsky
on Jan. 30, 2013
Alan Cockerill's revised book on Ukrainian educator, Vasily Sukhomlinsky, is a must read for any teacher interested in the humanist tradition in education. Dr. Cockerill offers a multi-faceted look at this educator and his philosophy. He provides critical biographical information as well as an insightful historical perspective to enable the reader to gain a better grasp of this outstanding educator. Dr. Cockerill portrays Sukhomlinsky as a teacher, who understood the complexities and variables in the educational process; Sukhomlinsky was a major innovator in recognizing the role of neuroscience, health, field trips, parental guidance, and working together in each child's development. Dr. Cockerill's book is a major contribution to international education, and brings to light the teachings of a unique educator. I cannot recommend this book too highly. Robert M. Weiss, translator of an adapted version of Sukhomlinsky's I Give my Heart to Children.
