I am an educator because I love learning. When I learn, my students learn. When my students learn, I learn. I teach them; they teach me. As long as I'm breathing, I'll never stop learning.
Welcome to my corner of the world. Feel at home to browse, reflect and comment. I welcome your suggestions and information. Please share your thoughts.
