Sheri Taylor is a certified practitioner in Feuerstein Instrumental Enrichment (FIE), which is all about thinking skills otherwise known as cognitive functions.  Through stimulating and challenging activities, developed by    Dr. Reuven Feuerstein, students learn how to learn.  The human brain is the most modifiable organ in the body.  No matter the challenge, all of us can grow and change for the better.  I agree with the vision of Dr. Reuven Feuerstein when he said,

My dream is to make it possible for every person to fulfill themselves and the image of the Creator that is within them to the maximum of their potential.  This for his or her own benefit and for the benefit of every person they encounter: family, friends neighbors, and all others.  An essential part of this dream is that each will have the means and the opportunity; the faith and the vision to achieve this goal.  Human fulfillment is a direct product of these factors.  Education, training, and direction are essential elements in helping a person towards this aim in life.  This is essential to the past, the present and the future of the individual and all humanity.
