Milton Ramirez: Education & Tech Editor's Portrait

Yesterday, while I was reading our Google Reader subscriptions, I got knowledge of the decision of a fellow blogger about to quit blogging. BlogBloke has been in the blogosphere for many years now. While he's still looking around to make his final decision, we have to congratulate on having him around with such useful information and constant updates in his old and new web address. BB way ahead, you will get to know what's next for you.

Eduardo Avila is the Regional Editor in Global Voices for Latin America, and his advice when you don't have anything to write is to do an interview. Not that we don't have topics to write about, but I want to share with you an old interview that Jamila Lopez wrote about Mr. R. back in September 2002. The Editor of this blog was working for St. Mary's HS, and The Hilltopper is the internal newspaper for students and faculty in this institution.

The document was published in Vol. 6, No. 1 of The Hilltopper and started something like this:

Mr. R. is from Ecuador, where he resided until just four years ago when he decided to come to the United States with his family.

In St. Mary's, he teaches Math and Spanish. Mr. R. decided to join the St. Mary's staff because he wanted to do what he really likes, teaching. Since Mr. R. has been in St. Mary's, he has been most impressed with the discipline of the students, the warmth of the teachers, and the way things are organized.

Mr. R's educational background consists of being licensed in math and physics from the Loja National University. He also has a Doctorate in Educational Science and a certificate in Secondary Education. Mr. R's teaching style is the Socratic method, which is basically a quick question and an immediate answer. And, finally, he likes to research things scientifically and socially. He wants to find out what is within a person or action.

In his personal life, Mr. R. enjoys hobbies such as reading books as well as write them; he even has five unedited books on educational research, which is his passion. He enjoys movies and likes to get acquainted with a lot of people. But, most of all, he enjoys the time he spends with his family and traveling to discover new places.

What he remembers most about his high school experience besides the learning, is trying to think of pranks for his teachers.

From this page, we want to greet and thank Ms. Malko, Mrs. Sobon, Mrs. Paterek, and Nick Maruschak for all their support and coaching during those days in the St. Mary's HS.
