Now I work as a home school teacher and make educational films.) I hope you enjoy!
I've had the good fortune to do lots of traveling (yay summer vacation!!) and it taught me that diversity, when enjoyed in an environment of mutual respect and appreciation, is ALWAYS a unifying, enlightening force. This lesson remains a guiding tenet in my life, one that I hope to pass on to others through my videos and worksheets.
