It may seem unbelievable that I would feel Miquon is such an instrumental factor in my personality and accomplishments at age 70 and over 3000 miles away (Seattle), but it is true.

At Miquon, I learned to be creative, respect diversity, appreciate the environment, and be willing to try and appreciate new experiences and ways of looking at the world. Miquon imbued such an appreciation for great, innovative, caring teaching that I always aspired to be a teacher, and ended up teaching for my entire life. Despite a substantial number of experiences at many and various schools over the years, the lessons I learned and the moral values I absorbed just by being a part of the Miquon community from Kindergarten through sixth grade, have stayed with me all these years.
