Background Check Confirmed

Education is so much more then reading and writing, it is an opportunity to foster a love of knowledge and exploration. Building a foundation of love and support leads to safety. Safety leads to comfort and within comfort you feel free to ask, create, understand and explore. It is my truest belief that there is always a question but not always an answer, so how do we find it, what are the tools we use to get there and are we satisfied with the answer, or it there another question. I have been in the world of education for 18 years . I attended the University of Washington withing the field of childhood psychology, I have also attended a few community collages in pursuit of furthering my own knowledge of children and education. It is my desire to see each child have equal opportunity to receive an education that fosters their individual growth and an holistic understanding of themselves in order to choose their place in the world.
