Sharon retired from WSU in August, 2012 to focus on her passion for self-determination---both exploring and increasing her own self-determination and finding new ways to share information about self-determination with others. Since that time she has taken tap dance and floral design classes, read voraciously, spent great times with friends and family, put thousands of miles on her car on some great road trips, studied meditation and brain-based factors that affect emotions and self-determination, talked about self-determination at conferences, written for academic publications, and consulted with teachers, students and parents in schools about how self-determination can contribute to positive educational outcomes. Sharon has thoroughly enjoyed the freedom she has had to explore self-determination in new ways. She looks forward to expanding her self-determination journey, and meeting new friends, through 2BSD.
