There are some things that have happened in my life that I consider very good fortune. Luck and being in the right place at the right time.
Other things in my life have flourished from focused, arduous work extended over years. I want students to know their minds are plastic and that they can learn to learn and love learning.
Me Mother’s maiden name is Irish so I have the gift of gab, the sun burnable skin, the flare of temper and the love of poetry and folk music. Also the joy of knowing that life is one part luck and five parts hard work.
The gold is not over the rainbow. It is the burnished element of a well-trained mind.
