James T. Kirk" - from Star Trek) and then moved to Florida, where I have been teaching at Pinellas Central Elementary ever since (http://it.pinellas.k12.fl.us/Teachers5/oglej/ ). I married my very lovely wife, Cathy (who is a Kindergarten teacher), in 2001 and we had Alex, our adorable little boy, in 2005. I enjoy reading (philosophy, psychology, spirituality, and Eastern poetry), swimming in my saltwater pool, long strolls along beautiful trails, beach sunsets, listening to obscure music, making obscure music, creating spiritual/humorous art, strong gourmet fairtrade shade-grown organic coffee, any family time together, eating organic vegetarian foods, and all of the precious moments hung between.

Name: Rick Meisner
Class of 1988
Summary:  Upon graduation from MFL, I earned a B.A. from Upper Iowa University in Secondary Social Science Education. I was a substitute teacher for three years before teaching one year in Pella. I coached varsity football, J.V. boys basketball, and J.V. baseball.  Being an assistant coach on the state football team was very exciting.  From there I took a teaching job at Ed-Co Community High School.  I taught high school Social Science and coached J.V. girls basketball, and Varsity football. Within three years we were in the state playoffs. I spent a lot of time writing the curriculum for new courses in American History: History of Women in America, American Sports History, African American History, and America at War. I also was fortunate to have World War 2, Korean, and Vietnam veterans come visit the classroom. During this time I began driving school bus. I really enjoyed my time working with the students and faculty in that school district.  My next move was to East-Central High School in Miles, Iowa. I also taught high school Social Science and coached football, softball, and boys basketball.  I continued to drive bus and earned a Master's Degree in Secondary Social Science Education. I really enjoyed writing my thesis paper on the Great Depression and how it affected Clayton County Iowa.  In 2010, I moved back to Clayton County to be closer to my son, Peyton, who will be a freshman this fall. I teach Special Education at Wyalusing Academy and working on a second M.A. in Special Education. In the near future, I will finish my K-12 Administration certification and would like to be a principal. I also am dating a wonderful woman, Susan Sevart, who works at Maquoketa Valley High School.  I have worked with many great students and professionals. As we get older, we get wiser and learn a lot about ourselves. I have been blessed to have great friends and family through all the tough times.  Hopefully the future will bring a trip to Europe as I would like to teach with the D.O D. preferably in Germany or France. I am looking forward to our 25th high school class reunion this summer.

Name: Ninette Glawe
Class of 1988
Summary: I am the wife of Troy Glawe and the mother of 2 sons (Liam and Logan). In 2001 I began to search for my true purpose in life (besides those mentioned above). In the winter of 2002 I realized that I had already been given the most wonderful purpose that I could have ever asked for, and that was, that in the course of my life I had become spiritually intuitive. I decided to use my abiIity to give those who seek confirmation that their loved ones are still around them, something only they can understand, the gift of knowing they are alive in God's light. I have given many readings to people not only from this area, but around Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Colorado (And of course my mother - in Arizona!) as well. I am also proud to be serving my faith community as a member of the Peace and Justice Committee for St. Joseph's Church in Elkader Iowa, and I have taught and assisted teaching the Religious Education classes there.

Class of 1978

Summary: I have been happily married to Charlie David (M-F-L Class of 1976) for nearly 25 years.  We have lived in Texas and Illinois, but mostly we love Iowa.  This fall I will start my 20th year of teaching. After 15 years of middle schoolers, I moved down to 3rd/4th grade and I love it just as much!  I teach in the East Marshall School district.  I also help brand new teachers acclimatize to teaching (and in some cases encourage them to leave the field) through my work as our district mentor coordinator.  I also train Well-Managed Classroom for Boys' 

Town, and Cognitively Guided Instruction (the new Iowa Math initiative).  This summer we built a teardrop camper and have been putting lots of miles on it.  Sure beats putting up a tent every single night!

Class of 1976

Summary:  Joy (Meyer, graduated in 1978) and I own a home in Toledo, IA, but are considering a move to Idaho.  We have spent a fair amount of time there, and could see ourselves living amongst the potatoes for awhile.  We'll see. I graduated from UNI in 1995 and worked as a supervisor at Meskwaki Bingo and Casino for about 11 years.  8 years ago I started using my teaching degree at Grinnell High School teaching Industrial Technology, and love every minute of it! (I think Joy would probably tell you a different story about my first year or two.) During the summers we travel as much as possible.  This summer we built a teardrop camper, and although haven't been able to take it on a long trip yet, we will next summer.  In my spare time, I love building furniture for our house, playing and training our two lab puppies, and watching the history channel. I spend a lot of time attending my students' activities, and really enjoy just sitting and talking with kids.

Summary:  I graduated from Monona High School class of 1949.  At 82, I am still teaching English full time at NDMU.  I received my BA & MA from California State University, Los Angeles and my Ph.D. is from University of California, Santa Barbara.  I recently had a new novel, The Blue Heron, published by Water Street Press.   My previous novel The Breath of Kings published by Doubleday (now out of print) but has been re-released on Amazon.  I visited the library at MFL MarMac High School a few years back, when I was passing through Monona.  It is an excellent facility.  Quite different from the library I used to work in at Monona High School.  I should like to send copies of both novels to the library if you would indicate to whom they should be sent. My brothers and I still sing: “We are Bulldogs, We are Bulldogs, And our ears are made of leather and they flap in windy weather…”

Thank you.  Would appreciate hearing from someone.
