My name is Sue Houston and I have been teaching high school science at Proctor Academy in central New Hampshire for over 25 years. The more I learn, the more questions I have about how good education really works!
I started this blog out of a strong desire to delve deeply into the question of… “How do Kids Learn?” The title has a question mark intentionally because I don’t believe we have, or are going to come to, definitive answers, but the value to me is in “living in the question” and keeping our minds open to new possibilities.
On a more personal note, I am so lucky to be married to the love of my life and best friend, Doug Houston, who also works at Proctor. Doug and I live in a “little house in the woods” we built with our own four hands back in 1993, when we were younger, stronger and had apparently limitless energy! (The project was 95% complete in one summer). We have several cats, a small flock of chickens, a large vegetable garden and two lovely setter dogs to keep us company.
