“One of my heroes in the field of education is Dr. Howard Gardner, author of “Frames of Mind, the theory of Multiple Intelligences”. He writes from his perspective of 25 years of research that shows we all possess the innate ability of Interpersonal Intelligence, Intrapersonal Intelligence, Linguistic Intelligence, Logical-mathematical Intelligence, Musical Intelligence, Bodily-Kinesthetic Intelligence, Spatial Intelligence and Nature Intelligence. With Dr. Gardner’s research in mind, I strongly believe that all children have the potential and ability to learn.”
He is very excited to have joined the Micheltorena Family and specifically to be a part of the Dual Language Program.
