Albert Einstein once said “I believe in intuition and inspiration. Imagination is more important than knowledge. For knowledge is limited, whereas imagination embraces the entire world, stimulating progress, giving birth to evolution. It is, strictly speaking, a real factor in scientific research.” Nowhere do we see more imagination than in the minds of children. As a teacher, I believe it is my duty to enrich and encourage, rather than stifle the imagination of a child. "The Englishman John Locke (1632–1714), who viewed the infant mind as a tabula rasa, or blank slate, suggested that children be treated fairly and be allowed to explore and learn at their own pace to develop readiness, tolerance, and inquisitive natures. All children have this tabula rasa, and their early experiences in the world shape who they are. So what happens when urban children are never exposed to other cultures ? Aside from a local zoo or television, how will such limited contact with nature and animal affect this tabula rasa ? If we ponder these questions, we can begin to understand how important it is to teach children early on about other parts of our world, the ecology and the vital ecosystems that we all depend on. As a teacher by trade, I understand that this education needs to happen as soon as possible, long before middle-school. This is why I am devoted to bringing our generation AMAZON AWARENESS. They are our future, and our only hope.
