Now it's Kaly's turn. Author of Good Move: Strategy and Advice For Your Family's Relocation and co-founder of Harlow Park Media, she's not quite as, ahem, formal as her counterpart Kevin, but has had some educational moments nonetheless.
Tell us about your favorite teacher.
My high school history teacher Mr. Burleigh was a natural storyteller. He was one of the first non-familial adult in my life that treated me as an actual person with something to contribute to this world. It's amazing how that sort of connection can give you so much self-worth at such a young age.
Have you ever taught anything? How'd it go?
I helped start and run a non-profit that was run primarily by volunteers. Our organization provided professional clothing to low income women, and part of my job was creating roles and training our volunteers. I'm a systems kind of girl. And I'm a mom, so a good chunk of my time in the last ten years has been teaching tiny humans how to become medium sized humans. So far, so good.
If you could go back to school, what classes would you want to take?
French. I'm obsessed with all things French right now. And my kids take French in school so it would be nice to be able to walk around speaking French to each other. And when I say nice what I really mean is impressive.
What is the hardest lesson you've had to learn?
I am a recovering perfectionist and a natural introvert. Learning to connect with other people, ask for help, and lean on others is one of the hardest things for me. But I am sloooowly figuring it out.
What's one thing you learned today?
I was in a yoga class today where the teacher had the students get in a circle and hold eye contact with one another. Talk about extremely uncomfortable. I wanted to run out of the room. But I didn't, and I learned that a little discomfort is just what you need to keep taking things to the next level. I said hi to exactly two people after class.
