About Me

                             Lisa Brooks

Welcome to The Back Story. I started thinking, years ago, about what makes people who they are as individuals through my life and work with children and adults who learn in unique ways. Unlocking the perspective each person brings to life has been an amazing and educational journey for me. I have found these ideas to be motivating, thoughtful, and uplifting. I've been inspired constantly to act from a position of kindness first, and I've developed empathy and perspective along the way. I hope you enjoy my musings, and share with others who also will enjoy what I share.
