Welcome I’m so happy you can join me on this journey. I feel like I have a lot to share and a lot to learn. Whether your are an educator or not, we are here in this world together. It’s wonderful to look around and see all the positive things in our personal lives and our local and global communities. It is also very sad and frustrating to see all the injustices and degradation in the world. Quite frankly, I’m tired of hearing about it and doing so very little. One of my favorite teachers, Marianne Williamson, says, “What is shall not be tolerated and what can be is possible by the grace of God.” Every day we have a choice to be instruments to help heal the world, and I consider myself blessed that one of my strongest instruments is teaching. Another one of my favorite teachers, Mahatma Gandhi, said “Be the change you wish to see in the world.” My goal for blogging is to share and reflect about 2 things: trying to live a more humane life and my teaching so my students are awakened to live humane lives that effect positive influences on their local and global communities.
