This is a picture that shows what I did lots in the 1980s... I traveled with Topo (a computer robot who understood the Logo language). Topo and I did workshops with elementary and middle school kids as well as lots of teachers who were trying to become familiar with this new computer language. It was a fun job while I was also a faculty member in the College of Education at Oregon State University. My primary job was to help teacher develop the knowledge for teaching with technologies.

I know what you mean about our class - course we were seniors basically for 3 years once we moved to Sunset - we got to start all the traditions! I remember chairing the Girl of the Month identifications. I think that gave me great lessons for when I was Faculty Senate President at OSU! I know what you mean about getting together with the kids. With 5 it is sometimes difficult. But we have a secret weapon. I promise not to cook and Dave promises to do all the cooking. That brings those kids right on home! Another trick has been getting them tickets to the OSU football games and a tailgater that they really enjoy.We just warn them that we are spending their inheritance by doing all these things - We even took them all with their families (at different times) to Cabo. Last year we finally got that last crew in - The youngest, her husband and three girls. What a treat it was for us - and they got to fly in a plane! there goes that inheritance! And, the best part is they all love it this way.
It would be great to get together. You're right -we don't live that far apart - and now that the road is finished (I think) it will be easier. Now to find that illusive time. I keep promising George Stankey that I'll get over there! He and I grew up on the same street in Aloha!
We can connect by email if that is easier... I"m at niessm@comcast.net
I posted a picture that Margie Boris just send me.. these are all Aloha girls and about half of us went to Sunset and other half went to Beaverton. I'm the one who didn't get the message on what color dress to wear! Actually I think it was the only dress I had for more than a year. My daughters really enjoyed seeing this picture!

HI Kate, Just saw the message that you have a birthday coming and thought I would try to connect with you. We were in a number of classes together ia at Sunset ( i was called Margaret which I always felt was too formal for me - so in college I shifted to Maggie. But you might not remember me much, particularly since I went to OSU rather than UO. But I'm retired in Corvallis - sort of. I'm still traveling to conferences and even writing books. This summer my husband and I will go to Ireland, Amsterdam and Frankfurt. We have a granddaughter living in Frankfurt so we'll see her.
Anyway, I wanted to wish you a great birthday. My guess reading these posts you will as you will be spending it at the coast. Hope this next year is filled with good health and lots of happiness. Maggie (Landon) Niess

Hi Judy, I just received this message whiel i am in Mexico which I suspect means that either I have been hacked or you have.. Anyway.. Happy Birthday. I am not responding to the message unless you tell me to worry about you for this reason.

Maggie

I was recently reminded to update my profile. Not sure much had changed for me. I still seem to have difficulty in retiring (actually have had 3 retirement parties). I guess I just need something to do so I try to help out at the university. My husband (Dave) and I still make sure we go to Mexico every year - when Corvallis gets rainy (ok.. so it is a lot rainy which is why we go for 9 weeks this coming year).

I just finished a book that summarizes the research I have done since 2006 on online teaching. I think. We still go to as many OSU football games as we can (why? you ask? - well it is our home base so we tailgate when they are at home and this year we went to the Minnesota game and the Colorado game... because we have family to see there.

The only hard part lately has been saying goodbye with the passing of good friends. I guess that is the challenge for all of us at this point. Sure hope you are all healthy and doing great. Sure hope there is a time when we can come to one of the reunions. Till then may your lives be filled with blessings and happiness.

Great to hear from you. Like Mark, I had lost contact with you. I had forgot we have the same birthday, so a belated happy birthday greetings for #73. We are in Newport, retired here in 2006. Life is good!

Happy birthday, what a beautiful day to celebrate you!
