Comments:

I went to New College in Sarasota, FLA, then transferred to Goucher College, majoring in Biology and Art. I had four children, then got my Master of Arts in Teaching and teacher certification in Biology. I facilitated arts and crafts activities for adults recovering from mental illnesses, and I taught environmental education to special needs students. More recently I've been teaching Science to children in Mexico and the U.S., through Art Activities and Nature Hikes. This past summer I counted species in Michaocan, Mexico and taught art and science classes for kids. I also teach watercolor botanical art. Here are my blogs from this summer: http://www.forestsformonarchs.org/blog/kids/

School Story:

Every day at lunch I used to knock on the partition dividing Western's cafeteria from Poly's. Somebody started knocking back. One day my friend Laura Bird slid a not under the partition, asking, "Are you cute?" The note came back with a response, "Is the Pope Catholic?" Then s note came asking to meet out in the quad. Laura and I went out into the quad and met a Poly student. He wasn't actually the one who had been knocking back to me every day, but he turned out to be the brother of my brother's best friend who ended up marrying my stepsister. We finally got to meet the one who had been returning my knocks, Steve Chalk, and Laura liked him so much I stepped back. She wound up marrying him and having a child but later getting divorced. Her child was in my children's Sunday school class. Much later, my youngest daughter had him as a Karate instructor.
