Why Everest?????
“For twenty years I taught elementary and special education in Steamboat Springs, CO.  My goal as a teacher was to help children believe in themselves and not be afraid to try.  Now it is my turn to learn that lesson.  In attempting a goal as lofty as Everest, I give myself permission to try.  I have to believe in myself, in order to live my dreams.  Sure, I may not always succeed at what I attempt, but there is no failure in that.  The success is in the journey…it is always in the journey.”
