    Socrates said it best: "The mind is not a vessel to be filled but a fire to be kindled." I invite your children to explore their passions and figure out a way to turn their interests into positive and productive tools to make our world a better place.

    About Me

    I am a life long learner.
    The children are my best teachers.
    Nothing is more precious than to share discovery with a child.
    They see things in a way that is lost on adults. Detail is so important. Did you ever sit with a small child in the grass to watch a bug? How many questions did they ask.... and how many of those questions did we, as adults, ignore? Kids have a way of looking at the world with such innocence and clarity. In slowing down and listening, seeing the world the way they see it, I again discover the wonder that was forgotten for so long. I am indebted to the children for opening my eyes to the beauty of life.
