It was 1994. I was a doctoral candidate in the Educational Psychology program at the CUNY Graduate Center. As part of my financial aid package, I was offered a college course to teach right here at Queens College. It was an Introduction to Educational Psychology course for Secondary Education majors. My first teaching experience. I was terribly nervous, but also terribly excited. The students were great. They were engaged and we had a lot of fun conducting a variety of pedagogical ‘experiments’ to uncover the best ways to teach and learn. At the end of the semester, the students presented me with a copy of Dr. Seuss’ book: Oh, the Places You’ll Go. They each signed the book and I still have it. It will now sit on my desk in the School of Education as a constant reminder of why we are here: to teach, to learn, and to do so together with a sense of place: our place together, here and now, and to all the places you’ll go!
