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.

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.
