Whenever I wanted to reflect on a puzzle in journalism or education, I would go to Poynter to talk, to seek help, and to write. The administration always encouraged and supported me; the faculty taught and inspired me. They still do. It is a unique and invaluable—make that indispensable—institution to me, of course, but to all journalists and journalism educators.
