I Am From

I am from Military base, USA

I am from Morocco, Indiana, Taiwan, Philippines, Maryland, and Virginia, not necessarily in that order...

I am from 5 different Elementary Schools, the names of which I don't really remember, and Mac Arthur Middle School.

I am from Meade High School, Go Mustangs, and Green Run High School, we are the Stallions, the Mighty, mighty Stallions...

I am from Mr. Collins' Band class, and Marching Band, who even though he seemed to not like me and loved to embarrass me in front of the whole class, taught me one important thing...

To be on time is to be late, and to be early is to be on time.

I am from the nice Mac Arthur Middle School, Vice Principal, who even though I never met him face to face, learned something important from...

Good, better, best. Never let it rest, until your good is better, and your better is best.

I am from 4th grade violin class, and 5th through 12th grade band class with my trusty flute.

I am from Marching Band with both the Mustangs, and the Stallions. We marched at every football game. The funny thing is...The band teachers from both schools had the name of Mr. Collins.

I am from the friends who were not really friends at all. From the friends who made fun of me to my face, and also behind my back.

I am from Shoreline Community College, where I already have one 2 year degree, and a 1 year degree also.

I am from the school of life, where I found out who I am, and what I want to do with my life.

Where I got married and had two children, where I studied on my own what to do with a child on the Autism Spectrum.

I am from Many years of working with children in the schools, in a volunteer, as well as a professional status.

I am the Para Educator who will work, while you are sick at home, or you just take the day off.

And I live to see the child, and be happy for the child, when they finally understand something, and the light goes on.

I am a lifetime learner, and I am ME...
