My mom is so talented I can’t possibly predict all the things she might accomplish. She’s astonished me by suddenly speaking to strangers in a language I didn’t know she’d studied. She can tell you about nearly any modern artist or indigenous art in a museum. She is up for all kinds of adventures, from white water rafting to seeing polar bears in the arctic to trekking around the Mission District checking out murals. This is a picture of her after she decided that getting a college degree in her 60’s would be a good retirement project. She reminds me all the time that we are never done learning and exploring the world.

Quote IconMy mom is so talented! She’s been changing the lives of children in the same school district for over thirty years, all while serving in town government and being a great wife, mom, and aunt. She’s fluent in Spanish and the language of Jewish food.
