The Yoda Within Us All…

Teaching has been a lifelong passion of mine, one that I have carried into my adult life. I have been a professional educator for nearly 20 years dealing with teenagers at the high school level. A job that I truly love. But it actually started much earlier than that for me, I was a trainer in one of the company’s I worked for as a young salesman. I was quite successful and worked with new sales associates preparing them to enter the field. That is actually where I picked up the nickname “Yoda”.


The lessons that I would teach my students would be ones that would impact the rest of their lives. I believe that we all have a little Yoda inside of us.

We all have some special talent or skill that can help someone else out, so why not do so?

It is so rewarding to be able to help your fellow man.

The late great incredible Zig Ziglar was known to have said over and over again, “you can get everything you want in life if you just help enough people get what they want.”

That phrase has always inspired me, as a matter of fact, it caused me to make some of the career choices I have made.
