I began teaching in 1997 at an international school in Abu Dhabi, UAE. I have taught elementary school, high school, adult education. I currently teach 3rd grade and LOVE IT!!
A teacher included the following in his retirement speech. "You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make it drink. However you CAN salt the oats." He told us that was our job, to salt the oats, to make them WANT to learn.

Husband recently retired after 22 years in the Marine Corps. We have 2 teenagers and a naughty puppy.
