"Coaxing growth, productivity and beauty from myself,
plants, animals, and people."
continuous goal- 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
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 teachers 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.
