Thoughts II: Teaching from the Heart
by: Louis Schmier
In Random Thoughts II, youll meet
some of Louis Schmiers history students at Valdosta State University, feel with them
and celebrate with them as they struggle to see and tap the treasures within. Travel with
Louis as he explores his own soul, as well as his own neighborhood, in a continuous search
for the heart of each studentand the heart of teaching.
In this second volume of 70 Random Thoughts,
Louis takes you on a revealing and often difficult personal journey. Its a
long, strange trip through which he realizes that the heart of education
is an education of the heart. Random Thoughts II is an educational expedition to
discover the bedrock of each students human potential because
teaching, Louis writes, is like mining for gold.
