I became a teacher at 8 years old. My pupils were any doll or stuffed animal I could scrounge up and make my captive class. As years went by, I formally became a teacher. Educating kids had occupied 2/3 of my life at the time I retired. I enjoy challenging minds. I love ideas. I love crafting words to express my innermost thoughts. But most of all I want my words to help repair the broken world, to restore love, life, relationships, and ultimately hope.
