Gaining a different perspective on life has been a “game changer” for me. This change applies to my teaching as well. In my younger years, I was told that some things in life would be better understood as I got older. Of course, being an only child and labeled as “mature for my age” I never really thought I should have to wait. How wrong I was! My entire perspective on teaching changed after going through my thirties and hitting the big 4-0. I am writing this blog in the hopes that others can learn from my journey.
