Retired Special Education school teacher. Married 43 years. Have 3 grown daughters and 6 grandchildren. I have taught exceptional children with learning disabilities for 42 years and coached Special Olympics for 20 years. Have lived in various parts of the United States
and also over seas. I enjoy reading, listening to all genre of music and traveling.
Since retiring I have began to experiment with plants and outside yard projects. I also love to draw trees and collect pictures of tigers. There are many projects that I want to try as time permits since I no longer have to be on a schedule. I want to be productive in other ways.
I like interacting with all personalities of people to try to help them find who they really are inside. I have a passion for helping people believe in themselves. When human being experience trauma or severe life stressor, it is not uncommon for their lives to unravel. As a teacher I had to find healthy ways to strengthen the student’s doubt so they could be motivated to achieve. This is something that I will always do because it’s like second nature to me.
