Mr. Jonathan (Jae Won) Knickerbocker
Secondary Teacher and Head of Department
Eager to bring students into the twenty-first century using a unique combination of education experiences coupled with years of business experience, upper management skills and Laboratory experience.
As a student I can remember being overwhelmed with school and as a teacher, the feeling is still the same. In our lives we are constantly learning and thinking about our daily interactions as well as wondering where we will be heading.
Our classrooms shouldn't be any different than the real world; rather the classroom should be a reflection of our living world. As a teacher, we need to inspire our students to inspire, to learn about learning and to think about thinking. As a student, we need to discover our learning, our thinking and our wonderment How far we climb the latter doesn't really matter, it's the understanding of ourselves that does.
So, when does a person complete their journey as a student? Only when that person has stopped their learning, thinking and wonderment. I know I'm constantly learning something new every day, I'm thinking about overcoming new challenges and wondering where I'll be next. As much as I'm a teacher now, I'm really just a student like you and everyone else.

And so you touch this limit, something happens and you suddenly can go a little bit further. With your mind power, your determination, your instinct, and the experience as well, you can fly very high.
