wanderer of Wisconsin
sometimes witty, wise, wacky
willful worrier of Wetlands.

I grew up in Iowa along the Mississippi River.
where I was once tetherball
champion at Camp WaMaKa.

Bess, and Laura Ingalls—
books have always had
an important role in my life.
One of the best parts of being a teacher

available to kids and encouraging
Thanks for joining me on this journey.
