We, as a society, are increasingly losing sight of the importance of the Humanities. I thought the best way to try to save the Humanities is to keep them from becoming a “wandering bark,” and potentially lost forever. We need to, as a country—and the human race in general—find our position in reference to the proverbial Pole star, and right our course back toward including the field of study that teaches us to remember that we are all, in the end, human.
My name is Heather Wheat and I am a high school English teacher with a special interest in British history and literature. I am a self-driven student of literature and history—the humanities—because not only do I possess a passion for the aforementioned topics, but because I believe they are an important component of a well-rounded education and, more importantly, a well-rounded human being.
