I am a practicing pediatrician currently residing in Anderson, South Carolina. As a pediatrician and mother of two teenagers I have had first-hand experience with the gamut of education issues in both my personal and professional life. I come from a family of educators, from kindergarten teachers to college professors, including administrators, and have the utmost respect for true professional educators. As I began this journey with my kids into the realm of education, I was a naive, trusting soul. The school of hard knocks has turned me into a realist with a perspective, as a parent, to share with those coming after me.
You may be asking yourself why I am doing this. I have nothing to sell, nothing to promote, just an accumulation of knowledge and experiences that make my head want to explode as I see what goes on in the public school system today. As a pediatrician/mom, I accumulated experiences through the education of my kids–both through homeschooling and public school. Sharing this information to interested parties is therapeutic for me and hopefully helpful to others….being a Bridge Builder for others.
