I'm a 75 year old female who enjoys being a lifelong learner. I've found the mini lessons interesting and informative. I retired after 32 years working as a paraeducator, helping struggling students achieve learning skills. In my experience, developing a thirst for knowledge and demonstrating the vast sources of information helped students overcome the obstacles they faced. These mini lessons open minds to information that might inspire further exploration. Keep them coming. I'll keep learning!

I like to think that I am very well educated with a masters degree, but I actually learned a little something nothing from this quick video is hat I may have already learned at some point in life but re-learned today. This video was very informative and concise.
