|Every student has potential|
In March 22, 1989 I obtained proof that I had my doctorate degree from the State of Louisiana from the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education. Well, at least the envelope was addressed to Dr. Robert Charles Payne.
I told my mother who worked very hard to earn her doctorate that she put in too much time. All that I had done was to apply for the job of State Superintendent and immediately I was addressed as Dr. Robert Charles Payne. So with my Ph. D. in hand, I do feel qualified to make some statements concerning the learning process. But seriously, I do want to share some ideas about the potential found in every one of us.
Having been a classroom teacher for almost 14 years, having been the student of unbelievably gifted mentors, and having spent almost 45 years of serious research about education, motivation, learning, and people skills, I now focus upon trying to impact the fields of learning and motivation. When I retired and had reached 60 years of age, my passion for lifelong dreams was reignited. Now I had the time to pursue this mission that I have carried in my heart for as long as I can remember.
