Thought for the Day: I love when a quote introduces me to someone new who has helped people reach their dreams. Mary MacCracken, whose words of wisdom are featured today is one such person. Her work helped emotionally disturbed children, who were stuck & unreachable (& teachers who have learned from her work), succeed & move towards their dreams. I hope you enjoy learning about her work & that you will take the time to listen to the interview with her from 1987.
If you have time take a look at this interview with Mary Maccracken from 1987 conducted by Connie Martinson about MacCracken's book City Kids. It is well worth spending a half hour with this insightful passionate teacher & therapist.
Come back tomorrow for the answer to Tuesday's Psychology Trivia Question: Are we dumber than our Victorian ancestors?
