John Steinbeck best sums up my philosophy about the profession that has shaped my life, both personally and professionally:
Three real teachers in a lifetime is the very best of luck. I have come to believe that a great teacher is a great artist and that there are as few as there are any other great artists. Teaching might even be the greatest of the arts since the medium is the human mind and spirit.
I have dedicated much of my life to being a 'real' teacher. My hope is to inspire others to join me on the journey . . . creating 'real' teachers, one heart at a time. Lisa
