Interview with Mr. McIlvain

Tuesday, May 28, 2019

Recently, our Superintendent, Mr. Larry McIlvain, joined Khadija Muhaisen Dajani​ in her Adventures of the Soul Conversations to share a little about his philosophies on education and how he strives to make learning irresistible. 

From Khadija Muhaisen Dajani:

My conversation with Larry McIlvain is inspired by the Mark Twain quote “Don’t let your boy’s schooling interfere with his education.” In this conversation, we dive into education, thinking deeply about questions like whether or not our current education system serves the world we live in today, what we can do to make it better, and how schools can make learning irresistible. We talk about ways to support and encourage a generation of collaborative, creative, kind learners. Larry McIlvain is head of the American Community School Amman. He also serves on the board of the Near East South Asia Council of Overseas Schools.

Thank you to my partners Readers Bookshop for their support.
