I fell into it, by students looking for a teacher. I found I had a knack for it and really love spurring on the natural curiosity of students. I love being the "door opener" for them and their world.
The variety and depth. I love to explore ideas both in academic classes and in music.
I love to read. I used to sew ballet costumes, and the most fun I ever had at a sporting event was watching professional bull riding.
