Hi! My name is Ken.
I teach acting classes and act.
A few other things I enjoy are sports, nature, traveling, and laughing!
And yes, Pandas.
I have worked as an editorial intern for Ryan Holiday’s company publishing posts for dailystoic.com and diving deep into stoic philosophy. I’ve been an assistant coach for high school football and basketball teams, taught HPED classes at a juvenile facility after receiving my Masters in Education & have worked in marketing.
Over the years I have developed a passion for learning and hope my words can play even a small part in cultivating your passion for learning as I believe it is an essential skill in creating a life you are happy with.
—Not in learning of school subjects or things you don’t want to learn, but in critical thinking and learning about things you do want to learn more about.
I don’t have all the answers so I often try to quote credible people and sources, although the following two quotes are supposedly misquoted to Einstein and Mark Twain in regards to Education, synonymous with Learning:
“Education is what remains after one has forgotten what one has learned in school.”
“I have never let my schooling interfere with my education.”
I do believe that fruitful changes are on their way to the current Education system. There are numerous amounts of people contributing to this change(thank you!), one of them being Seth Godin – a best selling author, entrepreneur, and teacher.
Godin’s book, Stop Stealing Dreams, gives great insight into the current education system as well as practical, unorthodox, and progressive ideas that will definitely impact the future of education.
And guess what? It’s free.
He encourages people to share it so here it is in pdf form.
“School serves a real function when it activates a passion for lifelong learning.”
Anyway, there is my rant on education.
I do send out a weekly email that includes whatever I’m learning about that week. If you’re interested you can sign up here.
And here are a couple nice things people have said about me:
“Ken is a highly motivated individual that possesses a work ethic that sets him apart from his peers.”
“These intangibles that Ken possesses are not something that can be taught in a classroom; they are innate in nature.”
