Priscilla Angelo (Ed.D. 1977)

I have now entered a life chapter I call reinvention (others call it retirement) and love scheduling my own priorities. When I first  retired, I took classes at the RI School of Design to learn something about  architecture and design.

And  I loved the opportunity for such a creative process.

Dale Kinsley (Ed.D. 1977)

In 1971 I left UMass to accept a job at the University of California/Santa Cruz to work with Joe Blackman, a fellow Charter member of CIE, on a Teacher Corps/Peace Corps program.  Later I became a faculty member and Director of Teacher Preparation at UCSC.  Later I decided to take a leave in 1979 to join another CIE'er, Jim Hoxeng, at USAID in Washington, D. C.  I couldn't decide at the time whether I was going to make a difference in schools in the US or through programs in the developing world.

Wendy Schaerer (M. Ed. 1972)

As is probably the case with many CIE members, I've had the opportunity  to work with some very talented "undocumented" kids during my career and strongly support The Dream Act.  One of the more interesting things I did over the years was some lobbying on behalf of
international students as part of a professional association representing international schools.   As a former political science student, it was both enjoyable and enlightening.
