Yes! Attending Reunion
Comments:

I taught math in middle, high and community college. Even taught in Oregon's Men State Prison. What an experience! I completed a PHD in Mathematics Education and was hired at OSU mostly because of the word 'computer' in my dissertation. I have been a professor at OSU since 1980 where my specialty was integrating technology in teaching mathematics and science. I have been preparing math and science teachers to use technologies in teaching those subjects.

I retired in 2003, and have failed retirement. Now I have time for the research I didn't have time to do. My research is centered around the knowledge teachers need for teaching with technology. This research has taken me to lots of international places and I have had a wonderful time seeing the world with my husband while i interact with lot of wonderful people all over the world. In fact this is why I can't come to the reunion. We will be in Prague. I am also teaching online in a Master's program and actively publishing.

HOWEVER, my most favorite time now is spending 8 weeks in Mexico with my husband. What a wonderful time of life!

School Story:

Enjoy the reunion. So sorry I couldn't be there.

It is with great sadness to let you all know that George Stankey passed away yesterday around 11 AM. He had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and chose not to intervene with option s like chemo and radiation. He kept his humor and was always quick with a response despite this awful disease. His wife Jackie nd two daughters indicated at George's request there would not be any funeral. He lived just south of Newport, OR and had a wonder full-time view of the Pacific Ocean --- He once told me that he was keeping an eye on the waves and that they were all accounted for under his watch.
