Finally! — thanks to a true Educator, I have come to understand the difference between a Teacher and an Educator. And I discovered that while the world needs both, Educators are in short supply. … Each of us sees the world differently in one field or another. Yet how do we educate the “genius” and “autistic” we each seem to possess?
In the Summer of 2011, I sought adventure. Little did I know how intense and exhilarating my summer adventure would turn out to be.
One philosophy that has always remained the same in my life:
“If you want to learn something new, seek out who has an excellent record of achieving the very thing you want to learn.”
After seeing the test results and college acceptance letters from a number of graduates of the prestigious Delphian School in Sheridan, Oregon, I felt this must be the right place. I applied and was accepted for a 7-week summer teaching internship.
Understanding the very fundamentals behind speech is a step most forgotten. Yet, it is a basic building block when teaching any language to a child or adult alike.

This lesson utilizes creative games and word meanings that you may not have seen before…
