Welcome to Rob’s blog! My name is Rob and I am interested in three things: philosophy, human nature and education. I’ve created this blog to clarify my thoughts and to share them with you. I am a teacher, so the main focus of this blog is education. I became a teacher because i want to make the world a better place and believe the best way to do that is to influence the development of young people. They are the future of the world. I believe an important part of educating young people, as well as understanding the reasons why the world is the way it is today, is understanding human nature (hence my interest in this area). And my philosophy guides how i live my life as well as the way i think schools should be.
I believe that education as we know it today is not the best way to educate young people. I know there is a better way. I think i have good ideas on how to create a better education system that actually interests young people in school, so my aim in this blog is to express, share and develop these ideas and hopefully create a better education system. I am always interested in other people’s opinions (in fact i think they are absolutely necessary) so i welcome you to comment on my posts in any way that you wish. I hope you enjoy the blog!
