Yes! Attending Reunion

I lived in Norfolk for a number of years, but we moved to Crawfordsville, Indiana, in '88 with Nucor. I started teaching again when Peter started kindergarden. I have been teaching for 30 years total! I'm recently divorced. It's been an adventure starting over again but I travel quite a bit to many Latin American countries..and just recently returned from Colombia. I also am an adjunct for a local college, Wabash, where I teach foreign language methodology. I currently teach at the high school level...only Spanish now, no English. I look forward to retiring in a couple of years and have been wondering what to do..perhaps teach abroad.
I'm fairly active in the community...I especially enjoy participating with our local community always I like being on stage, but I am also on the theatre board.

School Story:

School...It certainly has been a long time since I've been at Norfolk... I don't think I knew much when I was young. I was just trying to get by... The kids were great though. I never considered myself a decent teacher until about 10 years ago.
I remember when my 10th grade English class at Norfolk read Rime of the Ancient Mariner...and after the unit they bought me a silver bird-like necklace to represent the albatross around my neck....which, of course, they weren't. I remember laughing hard in that class when the kids would do upside down eye glasses with their just struck me as very humorous.
