 Laurie is a writer, public speaker, and musical performer.  Her teaching career spans over three decades. She has published resource guides for schools and is the author of Eyes of Wonder: How to Recapture Your Childlike Spirit . She has spoken across the USA about seeing life through a child's perspective. She delivered a Tedx Talk at Mountain View College in Dallas, Texas, and has presented numerous workshops at national education conferences. Laurie holds a Texas certificate in conflict resolution and mediation. She has visited over fifty countries and is passionate about researching other cultures.  Raising a child (who traveled to all those countries with her) has allowed her to see things from a more carefree perspective.  She hopes she never loses the ability to see the world and its inhabitants through eyes of wonder.
