One of the benefits of having a student learning at home is that she is much more willing to come show us her homework. This rarely happened when she was in school. Yesterday she showed me a difficult chemistry problem, which I could not answer. This then caused her to explain it to me, which only helped reinforce her learning. I call that a win!

Although I have many years of formal education, most of what I've learned has come from experimenting and trying to solve problems on my own. Once an idea for a project is set in my mind, it is all-consuming and one must learn everything possible about the subject on the way to the outcome. For learning is more than reading books and spoken word, it is hours of frustration, trial and error, and one sudden flash of insight when the world magically makes sense. It is during this moment when I am truely alive.
