Junius Johnson Academics exists to make high level content accessible to both adults and children.
Growing up, a scholar was never something I thought I would be. In fact, I didn't even know that such a thing existed: I can remember the scandal and despair I thought when I learned that I wouldn't be done with school at the end of high school, but had to endure 4 more years of school in college. What had I done to deserve this?
And yet, the basic disposition was already there. I was a voracious reader, and when I took to a fictional world, I learned all of its most minute details: history, geography, anthropology, metaphysics. The first subject I was an expert in was Narnia, and I never knew anything with the depth and rigor that I knew the world of the Dragonlance novels until well into college.
My love of learning is based in delight: I read because it is delightful to visit other worlds, places, and characters; I write out of my own joy of discovery and a desire to see others rejoice with me. I have come to love teaching because, as an old German proverb has it, shared joy is doubled joy.
