Speaking at the teachers' conference in Paper Valley conference hall.
Mo matter how nervous I felt, it was necessary to address the audience after listening to numerous reports of other participants.
I was very thankful to the organizers and wished my American colleagues good luck and success in all their endeavors.
I grew up in Neenah, WI just 5 miles south of Appleton. I left the area for college when I was 17 and then permanently moved away when I turned 23. I moved back to the area 9 years later and now I appreciate the Fox Cities more than before.
Fondest memory: Just getting to know people and becoming friends.
