I never wanted to be a teacher before I had my own kids. They opened my eyes to how wonderful it is that everyone has their own, special ways to grow and learn. No two people are the same, and finding out how others tick is one of the most exciting things to me. So I decided to box my previous career, went back to school again and earned a degree in special education and speech and language therapy.
Working in the LearnStyle team as a Technology Coach gives me the opportunity to be there for those students, who need just a bit of support to find their own path and superskills to be able to show how brilliant they are.
It must be my dad. I think. He taught me so much about life.
That first hour, before the rest of the family wakes up, is my time of peace to read and have a cup of coffee, watch the sky turn light and listen to the birds chirping.
This is me at the age of a few months demonstrating age appropriate table manners.

The only electronic media in our household was the radio for a long time. Mom and dad sang, told stories, and talked about mostly everything that was child-appropriate. I grew up to be an accomplished listener with a love for words and stories.
Though not graduation, because I hated formal photos, this snapshot was taken about that time.
Playing with Toys
This is me wishing to be a boy. Specifically the boy next door with all those cool toys.
