I was thinking sad thoughts one day, since I wasn’t able to teach at the time. One day I came across a site called 43things. The question it asked was:
What do you want to do with your life?
Well, I must say it gave me pause! I thought. And thought.
I was unhappy, frustrated, and missing a classroom of my own.
And suddenly I realized what I wanted! I wrote it all out hurriedly, and immediately set to work! Little did I know that work would take forever, and still be a work in progress every day when I awoke.
And yet—that’s exactly what teaching school is!
If you’re curious what my idea was, you can read about it here.
In essence, I want to help kids read. I want to do it online.
And I’m really good at it, too!
I hope and pray it succeeds, and that I’m able to help a lot of children who have reading difficulties, disabilities, or just plain reading problems.
The schools would say that that is not possible. First I’d need to test, and then—
Ha! I say, look around you! Illiteracy is soaring, we have children dropping out right and left, and still all we do is test, test, test!
No more for me! I’m embarking on a journey of my own. Any child or parent who comes to me in need will get the best I have to give.
I will do my utmost to improve your child’s reading, and, in the process, his or her life and future dreams.
Reading is the key.
