Multiple Intelligences,(MI), is a theory introduced in 1983 by Harvard professor Dr. Howard Gardner. Dr. Gardner believes there are many forms of intelligences, and that while all people have preferences, there are many ways to be smart. These intelligences can be recognized, strengthened and used to assist children in learning content as well as life strategies. Looking to the future, we want our children to be happy, successful, giving citizens. We hope for compassion and respect for life. Multiple Intelligences promotes healthy value to individual strengths, to personal and business relationships, and to a reflection of self and essential life questions.
" An intelligence is the ability to solve problems, or to create products, that are valued within one or more cultural settings."
