Hi, welcome to my profile page.  Enjoy!

I am a teacher, consultant and writer who loves to write, listen to music, read and discover new information, converse with others, swim, and spend time in or near water.  I love spending time in nature and enjoy visiting and exploring new places.

I believe in the human spirit and believe every person has potential to achieve happiness and success.  I cheer for the underdog and applaud those who live their lives in a manner that helps make this world a better place.

I have 16 years experience (and degree) in the field of Early Childhood Education, have traveled the United States extensively, teaching and consulting.  I listen, teach and inspire.

I'm very interested in promoting and living a healthy lifestyle and enjoy writing about food and fitness, and ways to enhance harmony and balance in our lives.

I love to write poetry and will be sharing some of my poems here.  Poetry is an art form, and I enjoy the creativity of crafting words and images together.  I was honored to be one of the poetry judges for the first HubPatron of the Arts contest held in November, 2011.

I fell in love with France, and will be sharing some of my travel adventures while in Paris.

I look forward to sharing information, stories, practical advice concerning early childhood and topics that I find interesting and helpful to others.  I was nominated and chosen as one of the 20 Top New Hubbers of 2009.

I am available for freelance writing and may be reached through HubPages by sending an email found on the Fan Mail page.

You can Twitter me. 

It's a fabulous opportunity to meet and connect wih other writers and people from various backgrounds throughout the world with whom we would never know otherwise.  I look forward to seeing you around.  Join the Hubpages community and start writing.

Thank you for reading my profile!

Make your dreams true~ love, light, Rebekah
