22 years. Visiting instructor, homeschool resource center teacher, and private tutor. Students inspire me.
I encourage imaginative thinking and writing for the sheer joy of it. I enjoy moments of jaw dropped wonder at the grand ideas my students come up with. I enjoy making a difference in the lives of my students by empowering them to think great thoughts and make great things.
