I went to UW-Marshfield Wood County where I had Katie Kalish for an English professor. She was by far the coolest professor I had. She not only was a great professor, she made learning fun and fueled my love for English.

As a teacher, I have had the opportunity to see the in school nature program from Wehr Outreach at work in my classroom. This is an activity sponsored by the Milwaukee County Cooperative Extension. I love the programs they provide for my preschoolers. They are hands-on and engaging.

Going in, I was terrified I'd be the only older person, never find any friends, or learn anything new. I'm so grateful to UW-Waukesha for opening up my world to Archaeology and Sociology. It, also, introduced me to my friend, Jacalyn.

I love UW-Extension! UW-Extension has brought me new friends, knowledge, adventures, and the joy of working with children. I have been involved in 4-H since 1975 where I have been a project leader, board member, and am currently President of the Leaders' Federation.

I value Milwaukee County Cooperative Extension Services because it provides information on safe and green gardening practices from a scientific aspect to the public. It provides opportunities for our children to learn how plants grow and where our food comes from.
