M.S.T.

Julie Bora, M.S.T.  B.S. Biology/Pharmacology, M.S.T. Pre-K -6 Elementary Education, has taught a variety of subjects at elementary, middle school and secondary levels.

From these experiences my values inspire me to continue learning with a focus on some ways and means as guidelines to a wonderful life :

*Start with a perspective that a goal is not simply to apply best practice but to invent it. It's all about the personal, professional and planetary upgrade!

*Breakthrough ideas often result from the commitment of teams seeking to creatively solve challenges.

*Let things grow slowly. Small accrued gains make a powerful impact.

*Less is more.

When we want to build a ship, do not call forth everyone to collect wood, and do not assign tasks and work. Rather let's inspire a longing for that beautiful immensity of the deep and endless sea. People, believers, will come.
