WHY: I am still learning. Every day. From everyone. From everywhere.
FOR: I author this blog as a venue for growth in learning, professional reflections, and as a hub for my collegial connections.
ABOUT: I am now the Assistant Superintendent for Instructional Design for one of the most amazing school districts in Missouri. I come from a crazily varied personal and educational background. I am passionate about what I do not matter what it is, so I choose carefully. I choose my God first, my family second, and education third. There is more, but I like three.
Personal About: I was born near Sacramento, CA. My mom was and is my hero and is still a lifeline for me. She married and traveled with my Air Force dad (who is step but who cares) and we traveled my whole life and lived in way cool places: California, Germany, Greece, Kansas, Nebraska, Arizona, Japan, Germany (again), and Missouri.
I am married to Kurt Westfall, an Air Force pilot, who is my world. We have two amazing sons who married two incredible young women. At this time, we are now called Granddaddy and Nama to three adorable littles. Kurt and I spend every day making certain we are authentic in our endeavors and work hard to make a difference in the world and be in God’s will.
This blog is a history of that authentic journey.
