  1. Oh MB!! So happy that you are part of this group!! Life brought you right to where you are supposed to be at this moment. How lucky we are to have you with us. Thank you so much for sharing your story. You are an inspiration to all of us. Looking for blessings brings more blessings. Wow.

    love to you and your husband,
    hope to meet you in Maine in October,
    with love,
    Laurie

  2. What a story, MB! That’s the first time I’ve ever heard someone make the connection between speech therapy and teaching languages. I also really liked what you said about how the workshop in French helped you to forget your troubles for awhile.

    BTW, I also went back to college when I was “old”–graduated in 2008 at the age of 48. I actually think it is an advantage to be “old” and “new” at the same time; best of both worlds…except for remembering names…

  3. Thank you Lori, for the reminder about finding a bit of rest and solace in the middle of a good story. Donna is a fine representative of what we do, and a kind and wonderful person. And there MB was, in such a dark period, at least able to put her mind into a pleasant place if only for a few hours. This is a powerful statement that I need not elaborate on in terms of our kids’ lives.

  4. Here is a powerful quote I read this morning in the New York Times that I think applies very well to the way we in this group have chosen to teach languages: kids don’t need more gadgets or technology; they need human interaction.

    “Why did it take me 30 years to start studying this? All this time I’ve been giving infants objects to hold, or spinning them around in a room to see how they navigate, when what they really wanted to do was engage with other people!”
    ELIZABETH S. SPELKE, , a professor of psychology who is trying to determine what humans are born knowing.
