What brought you to teaching children: Children’s curiosity has always interested me. They are honest, direct and give lots of grace. They are fun to be around.
Favorite book, as an adult, and why: Pink and Say, by Patricia Polacco I love books based on true stories. We, as humans have a great deal to offer just by being alive. We all have a story, and compassion lives within all of us.
