Travel, teaching, 3 continents, all 50 states.  Business education, gifted ed., outdoor and experiential ed., and every model and subject the public system offers.  I have been a circuit speaker, living in airplanes, and caretaker of a forest, a businessman, owned my own school, and worked for a charity abroad.  I believe that life is for having experiences, and I spend my income on travel, not toys.  I have taught 63 high schol subjects, in every discipline, and am Highly Qualified in all 27 of Washignton State's topic areas.  I love to travel with students to foreign locales.  Let's plan a trip soon.
