Dusty is my real name. Outside of learning I love to make things from yarn and sewing. More than that, I love to be outside in my garden and have as many adventures as possible. I am also a mom to a little boy who also loves to be outside. Together, we watch movies and TV. In everything I do, no matter how fun or not, I try to learn something. When helping someone else learn, I learn too. The spark in a student's eyes when they understand the problem they are working on bring such joy to my life it is hard to describe. I have been teaching English online to students from Spanish speaking countries, Chinese speaking places, and students from South Korea. These students have been 3 to 83 years old. I love teaching students from other countries, I learn so much while helping students learn. It is like traveling from the comfort of home.
