It's my dream that we teach all learners as if they were geniuses! I've taught secondary, and university for 30 years. Currently I write active (whole brain) curriculum for secondary and college success. In addition, I facilitate faculty and administrators who seek higher motivation and achievement for all students at upper levels. The field has been more than good to me, and how much more each student deserves its best. Together we make that BEST happen!
