Q: What has given you the most joy in your life?

A: . . . The joy of working with people and children in particular has been wonderful. Working with small children is like working with flowers. You work with them, such as teaching them to read, and they just open up. It's so beautiful to watch. There is so much excitement in them. It is a true joy to be part of that
