About Me   About Me
"Dear Teacher:

I am the survivor of a concentration camp. My eyes saw what no person should witness:

Gas chambers built by learned engineers
Children poisoned by educated physicians
Infants killed by trained nurses
Women and babies shot and burned by high school and college graduates.

So I am suspicious of education. My request is: Help your students become human. Your efforts must never produce learned monsters, skilled psychopaths, educated Eichmanns. Reading, writing and arithmetic are important only if they are to make our children more humane."

-Haim Ginott

I love learning new things, meeting new people, traveling, reading, cooking, photography, exercising, drawing, playing piano, meditating and hanging out with my girlfriend, family and friends.
