As a 15 year Army veteran and life-long teacher/professor of elementary education, It is my passion to help K-6 grade children learn about, appreciate, and understand the dedication and sacrifices our veterans make including the joys and hardships faced by all military veterans in peacetime and in war. I believe that our society too often assumes that children will just automatically know what holidays such as Veterans Day and Memorial Day really mean, yet how often do they truly learn about veterans? They may attend school assemblies, parades or ceremonies to honor veterans, but that alone does not teach children the “why” they are honoring these brave men and women. I believe my experience as a teacher and a veteran compels me to passionately make educating children about veterans my mission in life!
