My work has been in the classroom promoting the study of French and Spanish. As a child, I spent two years abroad in Morocco with my family. As an adult, I've lived in Alabama, Louisiana, and Texas.
An idea worth spreading
My father's advice was "Be flexible." My mother's advice was "Spend less than you earn." My maternal grandfather's rules for good living were 1) Act your age; 2) Keep your eyes on the ball, and 3) Tend to your own knitting. Add the Ten Commandments, and you have a good set of behaviors for life.
I'm passionate about
poetry, a great book, good music, and people who treat other people with respect and kindness.
Talk to me about
your life and your experiences.
People don't know I'm good at
keeping track of north, south, east, and west.
My TED story
With a nod toward TED, my TED story is I appreciate the comic pages in the newspaper. Why? For their art (design), for the technology involved (reductions, etc.), and for the reflection of human interaction (power plays, personal relationships, humor, politics,etc.).
