I have been an educator for over 3 decades and have found that each and every day I enjoy learning new things. I can not thank my support system enough for all they have done.I have been very lucky in life. I had parents who believed strongly in learning and saw value in education especially for women. My husband has been supportive of all my projects and all the many times I sought advanced degrees. I have truly been blessed throughout my career.I love children…always have and always will. They bring joy, happiness and a quest for learning to a world that can sometimes be very cloudy with cynicism and meanness. We should relish their enthusiasm for learning and hope that as they grow older they will continue their thirst knowledge and making the world a better place.
