Educational Philosophy

Education is a social process. Education is growth. Education is not a preparation for life; education is life itself.

~ John Dewey

Our simple educational philosphy: we learn as we live and we celebrate what we learn!

Jimmy Carter

While in Atlanta, we visited the Carter Museum and Library. We learned a lot about President Jimmy Carter. The Jimmy Carter Library and Museum has photographs, documents, and displays of the Carter presidency and Jimmy Carter's life. Jimmy Carter was the thirty-ninth president of the United States. He was born October 1, 1924, in Plains, Georgia. His father, James Earl Carter, Sr., was a farmer and businessman; his mother, Lillian Gordy, was a registered nurse. On July 7, 1946, he married Rosalynn Smith. After serving as Governor of Georgia, on December 12, 1974, Carter announced his candidacy for President of the United States. He won the Democratic party's nomination on the first ballot at the 1976 Democratic National Convention, and was elected President on November 2, 1976. Significant accomplishments of his administration included the Panama Canal treaties, the Camp David Accords, the treaty of peace between Egypt and Israel, the SALT II treaty with the Soviet Union, and the establishment of U.S. diplomatic relations with the People's Republic of China. Also, during his presidency, Congress enacted many new environmental laws.

We have some pictures. We hope to add them next week.
