Hi! My name is Talia and I’m eight years old. So my older brother was on a robotics team at Young Makers Lab but I wasn’t interested in that or other “STEM” classes…I thought. My schedule is busy with ballet, music lessons, girl scouts and school and friends.
When I was old enough to ride a bike and push a mower I had newspaper routes, mowed lawns, raked leaves, and did general labor for money. But my first real job was as a radio disc jockey and it wasn't on purpose.
While I spent more than 25 years in the classroom - gosh that sounds like a lifetime - there was a life before teaching that is worth reflecting on. I didn't become a teacher until I was 31 years old.
