I am proud and honored to announce that Learning Dimensions has been chosen as an American Small Business Champion by SCORE and Sam’s Club.
The American Small Business Championship awarded this title to 103 small businesses, two in every state and the District of Columbia, for their dedication to the success of their businesses. The American Small Business Champions each received a $1,000 Sam’s Club gift card, an all-expense-paid trip to a training event, SCORE mentoring for one year, and promotion throughout the year to showcase each Champion’s story. Each Champion is also eligible for one $25,000 grand prize.

I was working late one night at the school that I taught at making a test that I needed to administer to my students the next day (yes, it is true, teachers are not always able to plan ahead). I was tired, in a hurry and anxious to get out of the school building as it was getting rather late. At the most inopportune time, one of my students walks in my classroom (I had to work really hard to disguise my disgust on her extremely poor timing). She spent about ten minutes chatting about, you know, whatever fifteen year-olds find to be breaking news. I was halfway listening and trying to focus on writing the test. Then, suddenly, my computer screen went blank. Yes, BLANK! Right at the time that I was near completion!
My Vision of Education
Today is a special day. Learning Dimensions turns three years old! What a wonderful journey the past years have been. In this blog post, I wanted to share a little bit about how Learning Dimensions began, offer a few lessons that I have learned as well as give a brief status report of some of the great accomplishments within these past few years (Note: Excuse the length of this post, but there is so much that I wish to share with you).
Happy Anniversary Learning Dimensions!
I stumbled into education. At 13 years old, during a heated discussion with my mom (you know the kind of discussion that mothers tend to have with their newly teenage daughters), I declared that I would NEVER do what she does (my mom was/is a teacher). Her reaction to my resistant stance was quite shocking to me. She calmly and simply said, “Good, I don’t want you to be a teacher. You should be a lawyer and make some money.” Later in life, I will discover that I should never say ‘never.’
