What is your favorite quote about education, mentorship, children, and/or learning?

“Do the best you can until you know better, then when you know better do better.” by Maya Angelou

What personal passion brings balance to your life?

“I love nature! I am obsessed with birds, trees, flowers, water, and my garden. When I need to feel grounded, I head outdoors. When I have my head in the clouds up on the parkway or my feet in the ocean or Lake Michigan, I am happy. If I get to enjoy it with my two kids and my person, even better!”
