Know Your Stuff

We know teachers are one of our most valuable assets.
With the school year starting soon I looked up
outstanding educators.

That’s when I came across this:

“Three things to remember when teaching:
(1) Know your stuff,
(2) Know whom you are stuffing, and
(3) Stuff them elegantly.”
Lola May

These words give us a window into Dr. Lola May’s personality.
This remarkable educator made learning math fun.

When she began teaching she promised herself that none of her
students would feel intimidated;
and she made sure to keep her brightest interested.

She had the extraordinary ability to make students of all ages
learn math and have fun while doing it.

Lola May looked at the world with an open mind.
A mathematics pioneer and a truly inspiring teacher.

As William Arthur Ward said,

“The good teacher explains.
The superior teacher demonstrates.
The great teacher inspires.”

Mariana Fieraru, an Eastern European transplant, fell in love with her new home shortly after landing in New York. She "discovered" pizza! Years later she still loves pizza. And so do her two feathered-kids, Sunny and Flipper

Mariana worked on both, the east and the west coast.
Big or small, each project she worked on helped define the importance of gaining and sustaining a competitive edge in an increasingly complex business environment.

Business know-how, love of teaching and writing – all combined in 2006 to form OBI.
Its mission: to make learning fun! And easy.

Through its training, consulting, and publications OBI builds bridges of knowledge to take you from where you are to
where you want to go. Using a mix of serious, informal, analytical, and optimistic approach, OBI truly makes learning fun.
