I have spent last 35 years as educator in Lutheran schools in the Southern California area, also called the Pacific Southwest District of the LCMS. 20 of those years as 5th grade single classroom teachers but the last 8 years as a full-time Technology Coordinator at St. Paul’s Lutheran K-8 in Orange, CA.

1982 – first Apple II+ for my school ($1700). Have been hooked on technology in education ever since. Had entire library of MECC software for Apple, Mac, and PC and made licensed copies for all schools in my district during 80s and 90s. Am also chairman of our district technology committee: STAT. Lately I have been growing a lot by focusing on my personal learning network of educators who are using web 2.0 tools.

  1. Do you happen to have the old Apple ii Algebra disks that were developed by Long Beach City College in the 1980s? I used to use them with my algebra students and they were great! Now I am a volunteer with One Laptop Per Child and would like to try to get a similar program available to children all over the world. I found someone who has an old Apple iie that may work and we would like to try to print out the code and get someone to code it into an Activity (program) for the XO (the OLPC computer) and others running the Python based “Sugar OS. I have disk 2 from the program but don’t know if it is any good any more and don’t know if disk 1 is on any of the other ones I have.
