This seems like such a loving, kindness way of approaching learning. Wonderful!

I wonder if STEM/STEAM can have the same sort of personal trainer - in fact what the heck include the PE too. This would begin to prepare the student for the future. And personal powered transportation would not be a bad idea either. I felt bad that we could not take bikes to school in Western PA, probably because fo the hilly terrain and narrow roads. But we did walk many times. Great entry Steve!


Thanks Gregg.. that's an excellent suggestion.


I also found physical activities I loved in spite of school. I am tall and didn’t like volleyball or basketball so the gym teacher didn’t like me. I used my bike everywhere even in the Winter like you. When I was on my own I biked everywhere because didn’t have a car. Someone suggested I visit a personal trainer and that’s when I learned a liked a lot of things. It would be wonderful if gym class would have encouraged us.
