“My teacher thought I was smarter than I was, so I was.” (stated by a six year old)

My truest passion has always been working with children, particularly at-risk children. During my twelve years of teaching, I learned that there is no greater joy than to help a child discover that they can do, learn, dream, so much more than they thought possible, and then watch them do it! Although I’m no longer in the classroom, and am now a curriculum writer,I try to always keep this experience in the forefront as I write lessons. It’s what inspires me. This passion has always been at the core of every business opportunity I decide to take on, because I’ve learned that the more I accomplish, the more I can give back to these kids. It’s my driving force, my “WHY” in all that I do.
