Ann Klotz Speaks at CreativeMornings Cleveland Talk on the theme of “Preserve”
In May, Laurel Head of School Ann V. Klotz was a guest speaker at a CreativeMornings Cleveland talk, which took place at the Western Reserve Historical Society.
Ann was asked to discuss the theme “Preserve.” In her talk, titled, “Roots and Branches; Preserving our Past to Inform the Future,” Ann stated that, “Our roots – as a country, city, school are often found in our traditions, but our branches reach out toward innovation. There is a transformation of the traditions that take place as we/education adapts for the needs of future generations.”
She went on to say that, “In Education today, tradition and preservation are often contrasted with innovation--out with the old and in with the new, but so much of education is old wine in new bottles, recycling that which endures and repackaging for today. As education evolves, what practices continue to serve us and where must we innovate or what ought we jettison?”
