Stuart's Spectacular Students

This is dedicated to my amazing students. The goal is for each and every one of them to feel unstoppable by the time they walk out of the classroom door for the final time in May. This chronicles their journey; their own Chronicles of Self-Actualization.

Are You Developing International Skills?

I've mentioned how the world is becoming "flat", and that you're not just in school to get "A's". Each day is a chance to think at higher levels and make what we're learning a part of you. As you do this, you are building a strong mental skill base that will allow you to operate globally.

Tony Blair.

British Labour Party leader Tony Blair, born this day in 1953, became in 1997 the youngest British prime minister since 1812, and in 2005 he led his party to its third successive general election victory.

"We live in a world where isolationism has ceased to have a reason to exist.…We are all internationalists now, whether we like it or not. We cannot refuse to participate in global markets if we want to prosper. We cannot ignore new political ideas in other countries if we want to innovate. We cannot turn our backs on conflicts and the violation of human rights within other countries if we want still to be secure."

British Prime Minister Tony Blair, addressing the Economic Club of Chicago, April 22, 1999
