I began teaching with Shoreline Unified in 1977 and worked for several years with Steve Atnip's wife at Bodega Bay School. Steve and I both attended Drake High (San Anselmo) at the same time, but we were in different classes.
I retired from teaching at Tomales High in June of 2009, but I am returning to help with the educational outreach program at the Tomales Regional History Center. The week of May 17th I'll be presenting to the 4th graders of both West Marin and Tomales Elementary Schools. On May 11th I made a film to use as a visual aid, following the route of the North Pacific Coast Railroad from Cazadero to the Hyde Street Pier, chronicling what I know (not too much!) and filming the various relics of that railroad along its path.
Steve got wind of my video project via my Facebook page and suggested that the NWPRR Network might be a resource for this and future projects of mine. He hoped that I might also be a resource to your group as well. I'm keen to try an affiliation.
