|The Magical Minds||
I was born in England and spent my younger years in Bermuda. Did you know Bermuda is not a single island, but a string of some 180 islands? The total area is little over 21 square miles. And yes, the beaches are pink.
My first bout of culture shock was our relocation from Bermuda to Portola CA, a small snowy town in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.
I attended undergrad at Cal State Long Beach where I received a BA Speech Communication. Upon graduation I became a flight attendant for United Airlines and the world truly became my oyster... living in London, Hong Kong and San Francisco. I thoroughly enjoy meeting new people, immersing myself in different cultures and traveling the globe.
After September 11th, I felt the world was coming to an end. My job was in jeopardy, and my life was in a state of flux. I served my last “chicken or beef," bid a final “Buh -By” and hung up my wings. The following year was spent at Portland State’s Teacher Education Graduate School and a new passion was found.
I look forward to joining the Alta Vista team, moving into the new building and partnering with Ms. M. to challenge the Magical Minds of 2nd grade. Stay tuned this year as we become scientists, space travelers, “rock” stars, authors and much more...
