    An Unexpected Opportunity

"You should be a kindergarten
teacher; you have so much patience,"
my late mother-in-law stated, as I 
ran after my one-year-old. 
Now, fifteen years later, the Institute
of Excellence along with the School 
District of Palm Beach County, made 
that statement come true.
