How do I find other people that just get it?
Dear Debbie, Yes - I'm an engineer too. I just saw your TEDx video and was truly inspired. Being a father of the most beautiful 5 year old in the world (of course!), I was previously disheartened about my baby girl's future. Lauriston is 1,000,000,000 times smarter than I was at her age. When I could afford it, I had her in Montessouri School. Although the Montessouri teaching methods are great, I can't tell you how my baby's experiences mirrored your own - having her persuaded away from the math labs in favor of "cooking" / "cleaning" exercises - I was very bothered with that part of the experience. Please, please let me know if you are acquainted with any entrepreneurial people like yourself out here in Northern Virginia / DC area. I would greatly appreciate it! I need to surround my baby with women (and men) that just "get it".
