When the pupil is ready, the teacher will come - Buddhist quote / Ancient Chinese saying

The following are the first names of students I have been fortunate to meet in past years. It is true that not all students were ready, but for those who were, my instruction had a powerful impact on them. That is not without saying that my students did not have an influential impact on me. They continually remind me of my love for teaching, and my yearning to always be better.

This list continues to be updated... :-) If you do not see your name here, and I have taught you, please contact me.

Welcome Message

Thank you for visiting. If I don't know you, this is a good way for me to make an introduction because I call myself a female Afro-Caribbean American Christian Humanistic introvert... lol! Yes, too many labels but one label never fits does it? If I know you, then you have the privilege in getting to know me visually and resourcefully. Possibly meaningfully, but the meaning may certainly arise after I have met you. My students always ask, "Why do you come to class always smiling?" Well the truth is my students encourage me to smile every time I see them and they remind me to always be optimistic and to love those that I have near me - God, my family and friends - and the products of this world - knowledge and tea.

Quarterly Quote

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." ~ Friedrich Nietzsche

"I do take my work seriously and the way to do that is not to take yourself too seriously." ~ Alan Rickman

"We categorized, labeled, and measured ourselves and then made a niche to match. The niche became our boundary, so that our aim became filling niches instead of fulfilling our lives." ~ Virgina Satir
