Acclaimed Poet, Mary Oliver, shares her thoughts on Daniel Franklin, PhD

I have known Daniel Franklin for most of his life. We share a passion for teaching and learning; for years it has been a subject of deep conversation between us. One of the things I admire is the way Daniel places the health of the relationship between his students and teachers ahead of all other considerations. Also, his understanding that learning differences naturally occur from child to child and must be recognized and honored. And perhaps most of all, his faith in what Rudolph Steiner said so well, that beyond “the actual subject matter” of the work at hand, schooling should “cherish and cultivate within [each child] the spirit of an education which bears the future within it.” In this age, when students are viewed as products and their humanity gets lost in the process, Daniel’s approach is a remarkable breath of fresh air. I marvel at both the compassion and knowledge that Daniel and his dedicated staff possess. As a poet it is my joy to be astonished by all that is around me. Daniel recognizes, and his work expresses, a similar astonishment at the potential of every student and family with whom he works.
