In my book, Career Finder Workbook for Teens, I have laid out a concise program to introduce middle school age students to the process of career exploration. Only thirty pages in length, the book asks students to consider personality, interests, and values in choosing a career.

The first time I sang in a chorus, I was ten years old. Since that long ago time, I’ve sung with church choirs, community choruses, and symphonic chorales. I’ve sung in England, France, Germany, and Switzerland. I’ve sung in various languages, none of which I speak. Through it all, I’ve had the most wonderful experiences. Take a look behind the curtain.
