Back in the 4th grade I had a gray-haired old lady teacher by the name of Mrs. McNamara who captivated my attention by reading/acting/telling the story of Pinochio. Because of her example of putting meaning, action, and emotions into the written word, I went on to spend 34 years teaching in the public school system in a variety of teaching situations such as the classroom, large auditorium classes, education television and radio broadcasting teaching and teaching kids about using computers. Like all jobs, some of it was difficult,but there’s nothing like knowing that you’ve touched the life of someone to make a lasting change for the better just as Mrs. McNamara did for me.
