From the Editor

Can you recall a teacher that really impacted your life? Perhaps it was more than one teacher who did. For me it was two teachers that taught English (12th grade and 10th grade) and one AP Art History teacher. The resounding qualities they all shared were passion and imagination. These were not teachers that were just starting out (something I’d equate to passionate and enthusiastic rookies) they had been at their profession for many years. It appeared to me to be simply a deep devotion to what they did, and it emanated from their pores. Those are the lasting qualities they taught me: passion, imagination and enthusiasm. Those qualities still prevail in my life.

Whatever you do in this lifetime, do it full-heartedly. Be fully present, fully engaged, for the way you do one thing is the way you do everything. Passion is contagious! I collected National Geographic magazines when I was a kid, and I was so completely engulfed in my love for them, my neighborhood friends started collecting them as well. They saw the joy it brought me, and they wanted to be a part of that joy or replicate it.

I have to thank those three teachers for that. Our March issue is dedicated to family & education—this is our ode to those wonderful teachers that are dedicated to educating our future. We thank you and are grateful for you. 

I leave you with a quote from Albert Einstein who celebrates a birthday this month, March 14th.

“The true sign of intelligence is not knowledge but imagination.”

Besos and Blessings,
