Wally's trip to Washington, DC, to see Shakespeare's 446th Birthday at the Folger
We spent 3 days in Washington, DC, touring the famous sights of our nation's capitol, celebrating Shakespeare's birthday at the Folger Library and seeing Hamlet, seeing the Holocaust Museum, celebrating Earth Day with a surprise outside concert on the National Mall with John Legend & Sting, seeing the Smithsonian museums, and having a great time together!

Hamlet ADVICE DAY (Wallies)
GUTHRIE MACBETH FIELDTRIP
WEDNESDAY, March 17 St. Patrick's Day!
Lady Macbeth: "Out, damned spot!"
Serendipity!-- Wally ran into one of her former AP Lit students who is now an administrator of a high school.
He was chaperoning the Macbeth fieldtrip! He e-mailed me Wednesday night:
It sure was fun to see you today at the Guthrie. I heard someone say, "Eden Prairie over here," or something like that. I wondered to myself, I wonder if I would still know the teacher. I heard someone say your name, and I thought you had a different one. Then I got a good look at you, and you haven't changed a bit, well just a tiny bit! You must have been twelve when you started there thirty-three years ago!
I am glad you are still doing what you love; you were an important element to my education. When I went off to college, it was the initial year of their great books honors program. My teacher, a wonderful gal with a classics Ph.D, didn't really know how such a program should be run. It was too much lecture and not nearly enough vigorous discussion. With my background in you senior AP lit. class, I was able to explain to her how it should go. The next class she implemented my suggestions, and the rest is history. Thanks for what you gave me.
