Music Specialist Married 3
I moved back to Texas after graduating from high school and graduated from North Texas State University with a master's degree. I have lived in many different states but have been in Maryland for the last 27 years. My husband, Will, is the marine curator and captain of "The Maryland Dove" the replica ship at Historic St. Mary's City, MD.  Together we raised three wonderfully capable young adults.  I have worked in a psychiatric hospital in Galveston, TX., taught dance at the University of Wisconsin-Superior campus, and most recently retired from teaching elementary music for the St. Mary's County Schools after 15 years.  My passion is the cello, which I started learning how to play a year and a half ago.  I'm still not very good, but oh well.  I was bored with retirement and have just taken a new position teaching music at a brand new charter school in Savannah, Ga.  School in Savannah started August 3 for students.  I wish I could attend the reunion, I'm sure you all will have fun!   Send Tara a MessageSend Tara a Message

Boys Gymnastics Program Director/Head Coach Single
I think most people remembered me as pretty quiet in High School, except for being a very lonely liberal in political discussions in CC (That hasn't changed - supported Bernie Sanders to the end last year). I think my career path is probably a huge shock to those who knew me well. I have just completed 50 years as a Mens/Boys Gymnastics coach in private clubs. I have evolved from shy and withdrawn to a frequent presenter at coaching conventions and symposiums. The boys I coached have achieved a level of success I could never imagine, 9 have made Olympic and/or World Championship teams as young men, after completing their youth training with me. A great part of my success as a coach came from some AMAZING teachers at AHS - Reg Holmes, Diane and Wayne Henry, John Cline, Dalton Holstein, and, the man who gave me a chance to take Calculus over the objections of the counselors, James Heinlein. These people, and so many others, gave me opportunity, support, guidance, and direction, and then demanded I take the resposibility to work to achieve. I strive to do the same for the boys I coach and teach.

I regret that most of the small group of friends I had at AHS won't be there, especially the many listed in the Memorials. But I look forward to seeing everyone else and anticipate a great weekend

Getting old ain't for kids!

 

Lookin’ back where I been, seems like a flash,

Youth, health and vigor, thought it would last.

I’m dizzy, even tipsy, need glasses to see,

But I swear I can see back there … me.

 

Love and good fortune are elusive, it’s true;

And the forks I have chosen led me to you.

When I think about travelin’ thru life at warp speed

There were many bright stars on the way I can see.

-------------------------------------------------

Chorus

Somewhere it seems to be safe.

Where I look for myself, get in touch with the truth.

Forgiveness, compassion for things that I did;

Getting’ old…it ain’t for kids.

-------------------------------------------------

Love is the part that brings smiles to my face;

Warm up the heart, find a well-spring of grace.

Hopin’ it lands before wastin’ my life;

Only found the right fork when I took my wife.

 

When you pass by the milestones open your eyes;

take your time on the journey, take a breath not a sigh.

When I got to this place, I’m so tired and sore;

Seems the years disappear, still I’m hopin’ for more.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus

I write about places and familiar faces;

Struggle to remember the details.

I hear through the fog and see through the sound;

Woven in there, somewhere…. I am found.

-------------------------------------------------

Losin’ weight, stayin’ fit, keeping body and mind;

It’s a challenge I’m facing, thinkin’ years I might find.

This place seems a long way from yesterday’s youth;

Tryin’ to face up to being long in the tooth.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Chorus

Not for the faint of heart nor youth so it seems;

They can’t see far ahead nor the cracks in the seams.

Don’t have the God-mind to see how they did;

Getting’ old…. it ain’t for kids.

-------------------------------------------------

When I try to remember, and whitewash my life;

It’s a trick we all do, cut the bad with a knife.

When the top of the hill in the mirror’s in view;

You can bet up ahead, every day, there’s less new.

 

Somewhere I slipped into place;

And the truth can be told by the lines in my face.

Slowin’ down, gently breakin’, easing into my space;

Now I’m parkin’ all the things I once did.

Comin’ out from the vale where I hid.

Realizing I’m no longer a kid.

Farewell to the past I must bid.

Getting’ old….. it ain’t for kids.
        I wrote this in 2010!!
