Retire and move south.

Working with the students has been incredibly rewarding. Seeing the kids learn new skills and being challenged to think in new ways. I especially enjoy seeing students who do not think that they can perform a task overcoming their doubts.

Love working with kids. After spending 3 years with Legos, I wanted more!
