I am a retired elementary school teacher. I serve on several Qauker committees serving North American Quakers. The committee meeting I will attend in Boulder is hosted by two boulder residents. IT is a planning cte for an annual Gathering of about 1400 Quakers. I find a great satisfaction in using skills I acquired as a teacher in my committee work. I also enjoy travel to view architecture, experience different cultures; I am reasonably sensitive to the joys and challenges of our privilged life in N.A. I co-counsel, love music, exercise at a gym, have two healthy adult offspring and a very good relationship with my partner.
