Dear Mars Educators,

As most of your school years are winding down, I just
wanted to let you know that I have really enjoyed sharing with
you via Discuss-LFM this year.  I am so excited about all
of the work you and your kids are doing, all across the US
and beyond.

I am going to stay on this listserv and continue to share, 
right on through the Summer and into the new school year.

Great and exciting things are still to come.  I get all
teary-eyed when I think about how *awesome* it will be 
on July 4th, to see that first picture come back.  For me,
personally, it has been a monumental journey to get from
being that 5th/6th grade kid who fell in love with 
the Viking pictures in 1976... to where I am today. I have
people like you to thank for it, too!

I also want to make sure you all know about and take a look
at the May 1997 issue of NSTA's SCIENCE AND CHILDREN. The
cover story, "Intergalactic Voyage," is written by my good
friend, kindergarten teacher Peggy Wethered of Nampa, Idaho.
I am very proud of her and this article. (and tickled that
she referenced our RED PLANET CONNECTION in the article!).

Well-- enough gushing... I have some research proposals
to write (yes, about Mars science).
