About My Career:
I started teaching for 5 years. Two years were in Detroit and 3 years in Clawson MI. After early years with kids, I got an MA in guidance and counseling at WSU and worked in several teaching and counseling positions. They included, alternative education in Oxford MI, counseling & teaching in the Macolm County Jail, psychotherapy at St. Joes Outpatient Behavioral Med.
I first retired from that job 3 yrs ang and am now working on developing a counseling practice, part time, with 5 other women called Coaching and Counseling Services for Women and Children. We have a web site. Each of us have an area of specialty including coaching, grieving, depression, nutrition, living with autistic children, etc. My areas are relationships, anger options and mid/late life transitions.
I remember getting a ticket for j-walking across Grand River and going to traffic court with my Mother. Senior year I skipped lunch for a few weeks in since I thought 1st - 8th hour because of a science lab was unfair so I skipped with a friend named Gayle (can't remember her last name.) She didn't get caught.
We had to choose between gym and music as electives. I always chose gym but regret missing out on music that I really enjoy.....basketball and tennis team, yearbook staff memories.
There was a yearbook staff party at the sponsor's home near Kensington Park. He had several acres, a barn and horses. My good friend, Sally Hay thought she could ride a spirited horse and we watched in horror as she was throwned into a fence.
Education after Redford:
I went to Albion for a year, 2 years at Wayne and 2 more years at U of M. Graduated with a BA in Social Studies and a teaching certificate in 1964.
In 1974, I got an MA in counseling at Wayne.
We did alot a camping as a family when the kids were young. Jim was teaching then and had summers off. We had a great 5 week camping trip to the West coast when the kids were about 10 & 12.
We moved from Birmingham to Royal Oak to Ortonville then Rochester and back to Birmingham. In Ortonville and Rochester we lived on 10 acres and had farm animals and for a while, boarded up to 17 horses in Rochester.
We've travelled to US quite a bit and made 3 trips to Ireland where my daughter lived for 5 years. She lives in London now but I haven't made it there yet.
There is a small place in Bonita Springs, FL where we spend some time in the winter.
