Speciality and continuous goal- Adrienne Nater


Biography: Adrienne Nater

Adrienne Nater was born in Los Angeles, California to a mother who immigrated from Belgium and a father who was first generation of a Russian immigrant family. She was educated in the public schools system from Kindergarten through graduate studies in the university (Cal State University Northridge).

Shortly after high school, she set out on her own to pursue her own way in life and to free herself from the conventional expectations and constraints of her family. Her driving ambition was to become a teacher and on her path to that end, she became an avid learner. To sustain herself she worked in a variety of jobs from pottery factory to airplane assembly.

Once she achieved her coveted teacher’s license she sought every chance to continue to learn and sought every available experience as an educator. Throughout the years she taught in public and private schools she also put some of her considerable energy into other work. She tried her hand at elective politics, established a farm, worked as a Real Estate Broker and IRS tax agent. Her bottomless interest in new things led her to a wide range of passions: flying, horse showing, surfing, scuba diving, photography, bird training, writing and researching topics that caught her interest. When she retired from classroom teaching she turned to tutoring.

Her intention in life is to coax growth, productivity and beauty from people, animals, plants and from herself.

One Day


One day we will be I

One without the other.

You will be I.

Or I will be I.

No longer we.

Yet, always we.

But not.
