What Makes It Work
A trusted friend and professional to help you grow as a person and as a family.
I was a public school teacher for eight years – searching for the right fit for me, I moved from grade to grade and school to school. I loved my students and loved engaging their minds and spirits; however, I struggled to find a balance between the intuitive and intrinsic way I taught and the way I was being asked to teach. I found curriculum to be missing the depth that I knew we all needed. That depth was often missing in the home lives of the children I worked with every day.
So, with a leap of faith, I left public school, giving up my tenure and perfect “highly effective” score to privately work with parents and children. I want to help everyone cultivate a home filled with love, understanding, and acceptance. I want to help them dig deeper into themselves and make connections with others and the world around them.
We are born intelligent, creative beings, eager to ask questions and express new ideas. Somewhere along the path of life, we often get sidetracked by society, by duties, by roles we are asked to play. I’d like to help you, and possibly your family, regain your passion for life, grow love and respect between you and the world, and strengthen your relationships.
To enrich a person’s life with a variety of knowledge and awareness takes more than just an “instructor.” I believe it takes a coach; that’s why I no longer use the word “teacher.” Teachers mainly instruct and inform per curriculum; instead, coaches prompt, drive, and encourage.
My goal for Personal Advancement Learners is to engage the world around them, question what they know, discover their true selves, ask questions, and create new solutions. I take careful consideration to understand your situation and needs, your life-style, schedule, faith, and other factors to develop a plan that is a perfect fit for you. I’ll accommodate and choose lessons or projects appropriate for you so I’m always engaging your mind, body, heart, and spirit.
Though I am not a family therapist, as a professional, I take my years of experience and create lessons and opportunities for you to grow. Instilling awe, wonder, questioning skills, and resiliency are among my top priorities as a your learning coach. Working together, we will build a community of support and structure to help you today and future days. Hopefully, you will take your advancement and bring it into the world and share it with others.
