“I am afraid that we are failing ourselves and our collective future. We need a society that encourages rational thought, critical thinking, intellectual honesty, humanism, freethought, scientific thinking, honesty, courage, and the freedom to question. In our schools, we need passionate educators that love their fields and who know how to impart that passion onto others. Teachers passing content knowledge exams and achieving high student test scores will not fix: our unsupported biases, our dichotomous political system, our religious and cultural intolerances, our greed, the celebration and perpetuation of violence, a rising anti-intellectualism, the constant fake news, our gleeful and purposeful ignorances. To move towards a more enlightened world, we must continue to reach out through civic passion, patience, purposeful listening and understanding, self-reflective honesty, and we must produce truly decent and intelligent citizens for our youth to model. As educators, parents, and concerned citizens, we can begin by placing a foot on the right path, by at least modifying our curriculum in all fields, in ways which help to drive aspects of what we wish our society to eventually become. In time, hopefully we can produce a world that is far better off than we are now. With conscientious effort, we can avert this idiocratic dark age that we appear to be spiraling into. It begins, with you.” – Reginald V. Finley Sr

What is Critical Thinking?

My favorite video about Critical Thinking by Qualia Soup:

I couldn’t be any more happy with you as my son’s science teacher this school year. My son lost interest in science but is now completely re-energized! He loves how you integrate him into the discussions and how you show him that you appreciate him. You should know that, we also appreciate you!


“Mr. Finley, We want to thank you for being an amazing teacher! We need more like you. Sincerely, Scott and Kim.
