Stephen Preece (ALLMINDS)
Stephen is a living dinosaur; coming from a time on a little wet island off the coast of Europe when everyone looked the same, everybody knew everyone else in their street, and you were either Protestant or Catholic – and hated each other. Beaten by a teacher within days of attending his first school at the age of 5, he learnt to read around the age of 9 and read his first book around the age of 16. Some might describe these experiences as character forming, Stephen considered these years to be at best a waste of time and worse very damaging. He did, however, reflect upon his experiences and decided to make a career in education. Since he has taught in two continents, all age ranges, hundreds of nationalities and across the entire social economic spectrum. His mission is clear and that is to help learners learn to:
- identify self
- recognise their obligations to self and others
- get hooked on learning
- see knowledge as a whole and not just the sum of its parts
- play a part in making education contagious
