“Teaching is successful only as it causes people to think for themselves. What the teacher thinks matters little; what he makes the child think matters much.”
Interesting lady. Loved the quote I saw from James Clear and looked her up. “What a teacher thinks matters little but what he makes the child think matters much.” We need more to this in our government run schools.
Alice Moore Hubbard (June 7, 1861 – May 7, 1915) was a noted American feminist, writer, and, with her husband, Elbert Hubbard, was a leading figure in the Roycroft movement – a branch of the Arts and Crafts Movement in England. Moore Hubbard served as the general manager for the collective, along with managing the Roycraft Inn. She was also the principal of Roycroft School for Boys.
Born Alice Luann Moore in Wales, New York, she was a schoolteacher before meeting her future husband, the married soap salesman and philosopher Elbert Hubbard whom she married in 1904 after a controversial affair in which she bore an illegitimate child, Miriam Elberta Hubbard (1894–1985).
On March 3, 1913, Hubbard marched in the first Washington, D.C. suffragist parade.
The couple perished in the sinking of the RMS Lusitania during the First World War while on a voyage to Europe to cover the war and ultimately interview Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany
