I answer the questions you send to Ask Dee on-line. Honestly, this is the most enjoyable opportunity I have had in my many years in education. I get to "meet" so many of you on-line.
In my other life, I am the mother of two married daughters and the grandmother of Asher, Helena, Ronan, Eden and Clover. I promise not to post too many pictures of the grandchildren.
I began teaching in the St. Louis Public Schools in 1970. I spent six years in a private school in St. Louis in the early 1980s. In 2006, I retired as a full-time educator from the Kirkwood School District in Kirkwood, Missouri.
In my spare time, I like to walk and read. My ideal vacation would include a hike or service or both. I am able to travel for pleasure with family and friends all over the U.S. and world. Over the years, I have touched my toe in all 50 states. I still would like to go to all the continents, but I have three left. My nine-year-old grandson told me he would go to Antarctica with me. Wasn't that generous of him?
