We are a group of six elementary teachers, the initial cadre to benefit from a special program called “Jumpstart,” at the Bronx Charter School for Better Learning. We devoted six months to studying Dr. Caleb Gattegno’s approach, the Subordination of Teaching to Learning, mentored by the professional development staff at the school, Dr. Bruce Ballard, Dr. Paula Hajar and Dr. Ted Swartz. The experience has affected each of us deeply, both professionally and personally. We find ourselves committed to raising awareness, in a whole new generation of teachers and the general public, of Dr. Gattegno’s amazing contribution to the improvement of education.
