Master teacher


Friday evening, Madame X and I stopped at River Lights Second Edition bookstore for the book signing event for friend and running partner Dennis Healy. His book, "Becoming a Master Teacher," is a how-to guide for less-experienced teachers.

Healy has taught English at Dubuque Senior High School for 33 years (or more), and was recently honored as the Iowa Mentor of the Year. So he knows his stuff.

I'm not a teacher, but I sleep with one. And she says the book could do a lot of teachers a lot of good. They just need to read it.

After the signing, several of us went across Main Street to Salsa's for dinner. The rest of us walked, but this young lady got carried away. (Actually, she needed the help due to recent foot surgery.) A good time was had by all.

Congratulations, Dennis!
