Life is calling. How far will you go?
That Peace Corps tag-line desribes my appoach to the final stage of Learn-Earn-Return life phases. I want to go the distance as I give back to the world.
My formal learning includes degrees in Education and Organization Development. I would need a couple of pages to list all the informal learning I’ve explored in classroom settings and by reading books. A few highlights include guitar, sign language, Spanish, native plants, beekeeping, health and fitness. Now I’m learning about Ghanaian culture and the Twi language. And I’m always learning more about myself!
I earned my living by teaching in public schools (Head Start and Kindergarten) before joining the corporate world. After 23 years at Texas Instruments working with incredibly talented people in a variety of roles, I retired so I could spend more time exploring life.
I love being able to return – to give back. I’ve actively supported non-profits through the years. It’s exciting to be in a position where I can devote most of my energy to sharing my knowledge, skills and time.
Thanks for taking time to read about my adventures!
