Underlining important points from The Docent Educator seemed like a good idea until I noticed that every sentence of every issue was underlined. Every sentence contains a good idea.
I just mailed the issue with your ’94 article on Imagining to my daughter who has our 15 month old grandson. I asked her to return the issue to me when she and her husband finished studying it. And, I just filed your winter issue after reading it through. Your article: Motivating the Desire to Learn was superb.
I have subscribed to one magazine for about 50 years and read dozens of journals, newspapers, and magazines monthly in my work. Never has a publication brought more joy, excitement, and challenge into my life than The Docent Educator. The continued high quality of your lead article and the articles by contributing writers, covering such a broad spectrum of education and museums, is amazing. I greatly enjoy my work as a Birmingham Museum of Art docent and your journal contributes to that enjoyment.
Thank you for your enlightening and enjoyable education and training of docents.
