Background and passion

I have been involved in education for the past 20 years. I have always been a proponent of sharing knowledge and information. The teacher-student relationship is something that I cannot abide by. It is always easier to share information among friends than it is to teach someone. It is, often, more conducive for the learners. With this in mind, I decided to become a wikibuddy. In this was, I can be a friend who one can learn from and vice versa.
