A Tribute for Howard Gardner’s Retirement

Howard Gardner is officially retiring from his teaching duties at the Harvard Graduate School of Education the end of the 2018-2019 academic year, although he will continue to be a research professor and carry on with his current projects.

To mark the occasion, HGSE has released a tribute in his honor by two of his colleagues. In a short essay, Mindy Kornhaber, a former student of Gardner’s, provides an overview of Howard’s accomplishments and contributions, concluding that “Howard’s legacy of extraordinarily good work will continue around the world and far into the future.” Mara Krechevsky of Project Zero contributed a well-crafted and humorous limerick celebrating Gardner’s scholarly career as well.

    Your work has been inspiring to me throughout my career. Thanks to your theory of multiple intelligences my students and I strongly believe that we can more easily teach and learn a second language. I am currently a Spanish Teacher. My Master research paper was on “Learning Strategies and Multiple Intelligences in Applied Linguistics” in Spanish. I presented my work to my University in Jaén, Spain. I am currently taking the Harvard Higher Education Teaching Certificate 2019, which I am thoroughly enjoying. Congratulation on your retirement, and your new role. Respectfully
