Enjoyed being with Ms. Lourey’s 8th grade English class at East Central High School, Sandstone, MN. Ms. Lourey invited me to the class. She said her students were interested in writing. I shared some of my journey with writing and encouraged them to use their creativity to write about things that interest them. They got right to it and began writing. I was impressed with their attentiveness and eagerness to write.
I also spent a class period with the 7th and 8th grade students at Harvest Christian School in Sandstone. I taught at Harvest for two years from 1995-1997. Working with teen-agers has been one of the joys of my life. It was great to be with these two classes of students to share my passion for writing.
