In seventh grade I became infatuated with Xxxxx Xxxxxxx and was embarrassed when she turned down my come hither glances. But it was for the best. My thoughts turned again to science of all kinds. I remember making a steam turbine, blowing up things, and exploring. By my Junior Year in High School my thoughts again turned to the social sciences and my grades in math, chemistry and physics showed it. My attempts to become a nuclear scientist in the summer of ’66 were met with even greater failure, but my father, my work in the Army, my independent reading, college classes, and work in the lab at Kraft foods and with R.O.E. School Works made me much more knowledgeable about science than the average elementary teacher. In the land of the blind the one eyed man is king.
I was a co-presenter at the National Science Teachers of America’s National Conference. I was sent to Super Computing ’93 in Portland Oregon and to be a presenter at Supercomputing ’94 in Washington DC. Later I was sent to Denver to attend an education technology conference. Not bad for a second grade teacher in a small rural school.
