Union Ridge School

HARWOOD HEIGHTS, IL The principal of this early childhood through 8th-grade school, Michael Maguire, supports an important aspect of The Art of Learning Project’s core mission, namely, that students and teachers should not be programmed to believe that test scores define the ability to teach and learn. Michael is placing the book on his staff’s summer reading list to encourage and remind teachers why they joined the profession in the first place. “I want my staff to revisit the days of creativity and inspiration, and fuel not only the academic growth of a child but also the physical and social development,” he says. “My goal is to rekindle the love of the art of teaching. The educators in this school will bring the concepts into the classroom, run with them and fire up the students in the way they’ve been inspired.”
