My motivation for teaching:
I love bringing something ideas to the classroom or a lesson that inspires teachers and/or students to find a confidence and attempt to achieve new acomplishments.

My favorite quote:
"Be careful what you wish for" My Daddy
"The absence of conflict is probably a sign that not much is happening"

A personal humorous school story:
During a technology training session a teacher complained that her computer mouse would no longer move. As I approached I noticed she had dragged the mouse to the bottom edge of the mouse pad. Unable to drag the mouse further she lifted the pad from the desk and with the mouse still in place, she continued moving the mouse pad in the direction she was dragging.
