Welcome

These pages are very much under construction! They will undergo some organization and changes but I did want to get started right away. I am currently restarting all the courses I was teaching before COVID-19. I think it will be helpful to use this page as a source of information for students. There are specific pages for Sales Agent Students and Associate Broker Students. This page will be a source of general information for all.

If you have specific concerns or questions, remember that you can always send me an email. One of my philosophies regarding questions is, "If you ask a question, yes, you might look like a fool for five minutes. If you don't ask a question, you might look like a fool forever."

Page Content

"How to Protect Yourself and Others"  is a page produced by the Maine Center for Disease Control with suggestions for protection from COVID-19. The suggestions are practical and reasonable and we'll apply them during our workshops. Please come prepared accordingly.

"Test-taking Tips" offers some thoughts for reducing test anxiety and staying focused. While it's written specifically for sales agent students, all will benefit from the general information.

One minute guide to joining Zoom Meetings... a quick and simple video explanation of how to join a Zoom Meeting. This will also put you into the Zoom Help Center where there's lots of helpful, easy to understand information.

Wisdom is exactly that... some short sayings and quotes to think about on subjects ranging from life to learning to... 

Comments are what students say after completing a course.


Wisdom

"Using Maslow will help them to Bloom." (For those not involved in education, "Bloom" is a reference to Bloom's Taxonomy.)

Tom Berger, Edutopia Blog

"Education does not occur by osmosis, no matter how semipermeable you believe your brains is."

Anthony T. Russo

"If you study to remember, you will forget. If you study to understand, you will remember."

Walter, but he didn't say it first

"No one becomes a baseball fan because they read the baseball textbook and did well on the baseball test. The same goes for people who devote their lives to cooking, leading or healthcare. These are journeys that require emotional enrollment, not a good test score. We need to stop holding the future hostage in exchange for an exam."

Seth Godin

“It seems as if Americans like to be the center of attention even after they're dead.”

Hidekaz Himaruya

"Education is the hustle for a credential. It exchanges compliance for certification. An institution can educate you.
Learning can’t be done to you. It is a choice and it requires active participation, not simple adherence to metrics."

Seth Godin

"Learning opens the door to the future we’d like to live in."

Seth Godin

"You are not the work you do; you are the person you are."
