Moved to San Jose, CA one week after H.S. graduation. Attended Foothill College & San Jose State; graduated 1967 w/ English major, music minor and a teaching credintiall in 1968. I taught grade 1 in Sunnyvale, then 1974 moved back to Wisconsin - Madison - taught preschool and worked in advertising for Madison Newspapers, Inc. Married Jon in 1980. When son JP was 2, moved to Savannah, GA - taught grades 5, 6 and K there 5 yrs. The heat and bugs (which were much harder on a midwesterner than cold winters) drove us back to CA 1988, just in time for the Loma Prieta quake. It's true what they say about the "Hotel California": you can check out any time you want, but you can never leave. Taught grades K and 1 in Cupertino School district until retiring in 2011, and subbed until becoming a city girl again, moving to Los Angeles in 2017 to be closer to JP and Vivian. I have retired from subbing here, but still do some tutoring. Walking the hills in our neighborhood is a real pleasure, with the payoff being fantastic views from the top. There is a lot of gardening to do with 5 fruit trees, and I still enjoy Facebooking, playing Words with Friends, doing genealogy and catching up on all the movies I missed. I've been back to beautiful Wisconsin three summers, catching up with friends and family.

School Story:

I have happy high school memories of orchestra, the King and I, and frosty Fall nights at football games (we usually lost, but kept the faith).

I am so grateful I was able to reconnect with Nancy at the 50th. She should have had so many more years of her "new" life with Tom. I will not forget her postive outlook, warm personality and lovely smile.

Happy birthday Bryan! Nice to see you and the classmates from Custer, and even Congress last year.

Happy birthday Jane. I remember you always arrived at the next age two months before I did. Back then, another year meant more privileges, but now it's just another year older! I hope the year to come is full of fun and surprises. Looking forward to seeing you at the reunion!

One thing there is PLENTY of in Germany is cool, clear water. I even have some videos of flowing streams and paddlewheels generating electricity.
