I am easy-going and open minded. I teach because kids are the best sort of people you can spend a day with. I have two of the most wonderful grown children. They are both musicians. I am from West Palm Beach. I teach Film and Science (interesting mix but two fantastic subjects!) I love to travel and garden (permaculture). Just went to Istanbul, Greece, and Rome with my daughter and Ireland on my own.
Filmmaking (editing and cinematography in particular), permaculture, bike riding, hiking, music, other cultures, Zen
Borrowed philosophies: "The meaning of life is to live it" ... "Well-behaved women rarely make history" ... "No thought, no reflection, no analysis, no cultivation, no intention; let it settle itself" ... "'Childlikeness' has to be restored with long years of training in the art of self-forgetfulness" ... "Self-reverence, self-knowledge, self-control - these three alone lead to sovereign power"

One Amazing Thing I've Seen or Done
I get to do amazing things everyday. There are big things like giving birth to my children and hitchhiking across the US, but one amazing thing is watching children as they discover the world and are fascinated by it. It keeps you focused.
