Summary

I believe that intention is a wonderful and powerful motivator. In my life and in my teaching, the most valuable learning has taken place while working intentionally toward a goal. I believe living and learning deliberately leads to self-reliance, self-awareness and self-assurance. Modeling this lifestyle and encouraging this attitude in others allows learning to be a source of daily adventure – a journey of discovery with no finite destination.
