I read a lot and hear smart people say interesting things. I needed a place to collect my favorite pondering, quotes and musings. So, here it is:
Quotes about Science and Biology

Quotes about Teaching and Learning:
Researchers have repeatedly cited the quality of teaching as the most important factor affecting student learning (Buddin & Zamarro, 2009; Hattie, 2009; Marzano, 2003; Rivkin, Hanushek & Kain, 2005; Shulman, 1983; Wright, Horn & Sanders, 1997).
"You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety."
