Vision

My vision is to live in a world where all humans have the knowledge, community, and skills to build a quality life filled with joy, wonder, and respect. I hope to use my life as research and an example.

Mission Statement

I am enjoying the journey of my life. In my life I will: 

  • nurture healthy, trusting, and loving relationships
  • develop the knowledge and skills to teach others the tools to build a quality life in my role as an educator: effective communication, literacy, creativity, social and emotional skills, wonder, curiosity, open-mindedness, reflection, coping
  • learn and be open to others – sharing, listening, supporting, empowering
  • create healthy boundaries so that I can be my authentic, unique, and excited self 
  • welcome others and make them feel accepted, safe, and that they belong. 
  • advocate and empower those who struggle to express themselves
  • work to build a society where quality life, compassion, accountability, sustainability, inclusion, truth, trust, and relationships are at the forefront of decision-making.

Values

Empathy

Being able to connect with others on a profound level of mutual understanding and concern. Not sympathy, but relating through shared human experiences that transcend time, place, and diversity. 

Loyalty

Giving firm support and remaining committed through dedicated and consistent action. This can be shown both to institutions and people. 

Growth 

The process of continual and infinite learning and development physically, mentally, and spiritually. 

Zeal 

Great energy, passion, and enthusiasm in pursuit of a vision, dream, cause, or objective! 

Uniqueness

I think Hesse says it best, “The very special and always significant and remarkable point at which the world’s phenomena intersect, only once in this way and never again!” (Demian aka the book that changed my life).
