My family moved to Amery in the late 1940’s. I grew up on South Street, the best place in the world, with lots of neighbor kids and wonderful places to explore. I graduated from Amery High School and then attended the Polk County Teachers College, onto UW River Falls, receiving a BS degree in Elementary Education. After several years, I returned to Amery in 1967 and continued my career in education, teaching 4th grade at Lien Elementary and later Lakeview Intermediate. I retired in 1999. My hobbies include, road trips with my grandson, reading, volunteering at the food pantry and trips to Germany.
