John Creger teaches high school English at American High School in Fremont, CA. A guiding question for his students is "Why do we so often choose violence over caring?” Through his Personal Creed Project, which emphasizes partnership values, students engage in the kind of critical, creative thinking they need to play active, effective roles as global citizens.
