It all started when…

I began teaching 14 years ago.  As I started learning about the craft of teaching, I also began learning about the intangibles of what having "it" meant for the minority students I taught.  In my second year, I started trying to educate my colleagues about what it meant to reach all students and meet the needs of those of varied cultural, religious, and socio-economic experiences.  

The irony of teaching is that the more thoroughly you try to teach something, the more thoroughly you must study and learn.  I've spent the time since in continuous learning, training, and reflection, developing my passion for bringing understanding and connection where there was once misunderstanding and hatred.  As time goes on, In Purpose Educational Associates and In Purpose Educational Services will fully fulfill its goal of achieving equity in a diverse world, one person, one program at a time.
