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.
