My motivation for teaching:
I like seeing people understand ideas and gain skills that make profound differences in their perception of life.

My favorite quote:
Freely you received, freely give.

A personal humorous school story:
Dressing in the dark, unwittingly I put on shoes identical in all respects except for their color, one brown and one black. It was not until at school that the mistake became evident. To mitigate my embarassment, a fellow teacher joined the charade by changing out one shoe, too, and we paraded our wares about the various offices. Most everyone had a chuckle, and life went on.
