I love chickens! I don’t have any yet, but someday I would like to have a small house with a dozen or so chickens. I grew up teaching classes of stuffed animals using a tiny chalkboard, and I have continued to love teaching since then. I really enjoy helping students at any level feel like they are gaining the skills they need to succeed in school as well as outside of the classroom. I am a firm believer that the benefits of gaining the skills and dispositions involved in learning are often not seen until much later in life; what we learn now can not only benefit ourselves, but all others we come in contact with. This is encapsulated beautifully in a Greek Proverb: “A society grows great when old men plant trees in whose shade they know they shall never sit.”
