I am a high school teacher and widowed mother of three, living in the Bay Area of California. Twelve years ago I was hugely distressed by an overwhelming apathy and lack of passion for life and learning in most of my students. I began a dialogue about life, hopes and dreams combined with the realities of living in the modern world. This evolved into life passion of mine and a project workbook for teenagers called Get Real! a reality project for teenagers. I believe most parents are terrified about what their childrens' futures will look like. I believe America has lost its focus on excellence and success through hard work and education. I worked for years, while teaching fulltime, to build this project, get it published and now hope to get it out to as many teens as possible. I am now creating a more global version so teens all over the world can benefit from having a structured opportunity to discover themselves and the power of knowledge to build their own best lives!
I live to improve the lives of teenagers, the most invisible group in the world.
Get Real! learning...a project of self-discovery and life planning.
