“Life-long learner” has become a catch phrase. I first encountered this phrase somewhere along my journey as a teacher – it was integrated into school plans, mission and vision statements. I see it everywhere now and it has lost its punch. But, the bottom line is that I love to learn new things!! Learning is my passion!! I became a teacher because of my passion for learning. I like to turn other people on to the fun – the engagement – the new awareness. Learning potentially occurs everywhere and through everything and everyone as long as the mind, the body and the spirit are open. So read, travel, eat . . and be open.
