Passion to Learn
School was fun (except the time I had to sing a solo in a concert with what seemed like the whole community in attendance –– and my voice broke).

Normal College whet my appetite to learn more about how we, as humans, do actually learn.

At university, my "Why?" and "How?" passions became consuming. So much to learn! So many people who knew so much!

And then, when I joined AWENS and was introduced to the remarkable world of adult education and workplace essential skills and customized program development, I was given the opportunity to indulge my passions yet again!
