Comments:

I graduated from MSU, and was a social worker in Wichita Falls for several years. I moved to Colorado in the late 70's, and attended Western State College to get my teacher certification. I married, began my family, and after ten years in the high Rockies, moved to Wisconsin. I received my Masters in Reading Education in 1991 while teaching reading in a large middle school in Wausau. I retired in 2010 after 22 years of teaching reading and English, and moved to Minneapolis to watch my grandchild grow up. I am working at Petsmart part time, in a school attendance office full time, and I am writing.
Update! I worked for a nonprofit center for children with autism over four years most recently, and have graded standardized tests, tutored, and with the pandemic may have retired for good! I now have four grandchildren and my own baby is engaged to a beautiful woman with two children, so that makes six! I have a new dog baby, a standard poodle.. my old dogs passed away two years ago. I hope to come to our 50th reunion!

School Story:

My favorite teacher was my English teacher Mrs. Puckett. I remember she told us once that she could tell by looking at a person the type of literature that person read. It worried me no end, because I used to read my dad's dirty books that I found hidden under his bed. I guess she really didn't know, though. She believed in me, and I went on to become an English teacher because of her influence.

What spare time? I write, read, and play with my dogs, a Wheaten Terrier and a Yorkie Mix.

Terri was so beautiful, a wonderful poet and one of the kindest people I remember from my high school years.  Her death, and Robert's, broke my heart.  I'll never forget the extent of the talent, wisdom, and intelligence that pervaded old Mrs. Puckett's English class, a haven of safety for all of us, and of us, Terri was the best.
