CONTINUING THE CONVERSATION WITH MAXINE GREENE: REFLECTIONS ENGENDERED BY HER LIFE AND WORK
Passionate leader, visionary, esteemed educator are qualities synonymous with Maxine Greene. Her influence as a dynamic educator leads 21st century educational reform. Greene’s prolific writings inspire passion in others. In a 2002 article entitled, “The Power of One,” Amy Oringel names Maxine Greene among teaching’s most revered thinkers. She is one of the hardest working teachers that this profession has ever spawned. While teaching courses in aesthetic education – the process of building students’ cognition by exposure to the arts – to thousands of students, Maxine Greene has impacted the next generation of teaching professionals. She is an active lecturer and seminar speaker. Her animated rhetoric makes a room come alive, all of this from a now frail body of an octogenarian.
