Personal comment

When I was a kid in school, I remember feeling as if I would do it all again someday.  Looking back, I think that feeling was a call to education.  Though I am not a state-certified teacher, I have taught various subjects through a variety of methods in a variety of locations.  I believe teaching is the greatest way to learn, and I am thankful for all I have learned along with my students over the years.
