Boy I did not realize it has been such a long time since I blogged. I wanted to post this picture. Last March I visited a wonderful gallery named Dog Pix and Susan Gertz took this picture. I love it! I also visited Marlys at Circletail, met some of the future service pups in training, visited with my friend Ruth and had a wonderful time!!!
I have exciting news. The first draft of my devotional book on Sita is finished! I am, making corrections and hope to find an editor and publishing company in the fall. This has been a lot of work but I am happy with the end product.
This summer has been busy getting the book ready. I also visited along with Sita my sister and brother in law in St. Louis and had a wonderful time. I spent a weekend in Boston with my niece and nephew and great nephew and sister and brother in law. Sita stayed with my great friends Edlyn and David and Deb.
I will keep you posted on the book!
Love to all,
Jane and Sita
I have a Bachelor's degree in English from Heidelberg University and Master's degree in Library Science from Emory University in Atlanta Georgia. I obtained another Master's degree in Rehabilitation Counseling and a Doctorate in Counseling and Human Services from Kent State University. I worked as a librarian for 19 years and with the Rehabilitation Services Commission with persons with disabilities for 11 years. I then worked in a private practice called Northeast Ohio Behavioral Health for 7 years. I found my true passion was teaching and writing. I have taught part time at Walsh University, Kent State University and am now at Stark State College. Presently I am teaching Deaf Culture and Introduction to Interpreting at Stark State and am immersed in several writing projects. I also visit schools, libraries, and other organizations with Sita educating people about assistance dogs. I love working at Stark State and being in an exciting place with phenomenal growth. I was overwhelmed when I was honored with the Excellence in Teaching Award in 2012! I will keep all of you posted on my writing activities in my blog.
