Earlier this year I was contacted by George Rede who has a wonderful blog called “Rough and Rede II, Just one voice on The Left Coast.” He is a friend of my sister, Alexandra Zell and her partner, Brian Wartell, in Portland, Oregon. George recently retired from the newspaper, The Oregonian and OregonLive.com, as a journalist after 30 years. He writes about the Northwest, people, places, food, friends, books…and features guest bloggers. If you are interested in visiting Portland, his blog is a wonderful resource from an insider’s point of view: https://georgerede.wordpress.com.
On February 22, George featured me as the guest blogger. Many of you already read it and have found George’s blog as well. Just in case you didn’t, here is the link of what I wrote: https://georgerede.wordpress.com/2016/02/22/a-teachers-continuing-education/.
It has been five years since I walked through the gates of the Oakland Museum of California to see what it held for me as a retired teacher.
The visitors have now become my teachers. Everyone who comes through the doors has a story. Sometimes I fill in the facts, but it is the story that keeps us connected to each other. I am no longer behind a desk, I am out in the world.
