From Sally with Love
From Sally with Love
Since 1994 Sally has been working with the Courage to Teach, based on the philosophy of Parker J. Palmer, with teachers all over the country. Sally is  a senior facilitator of the national Center for Courage and Renewal. A Kellogg National Fellowship from 1990 to 1993, Sally says, “changed my life. My learning plan allowed me to look at the concept of community across cultures. I visited Bali, Greece, Ireland, Australia, New Zealand, Mexico, and much of the United States. I met so many important teachers in my life, from Mary Robinson, then president of Ireland, to a healer in Ubud (Bali); from Parker Palmer to Beni, a very wise three-year-old in Benin (Africa).”
