August 09, 1944 Retired Teacher Married 2 An ad-hoc band ski day to Winter Park my sophomore year in a 50s VW bus. We had so much fun!!! Mr. Wallace, Mrs, Knutson, Mr. Roberts, Mr. Bolin, and Mrs. Blum Band events were always fun, and being invited by Mr. McWilliams on the Spanish Club's trip to Santa Fe our senior year.I will never forget Mrs. Knutson, who suggested to me that I would be an excellent elementary school teacher. I followed her advice which led me to Colorado State College (now UNC) where I met my husband Dr. Walter Princic (PhD), to whom I have been married 47 years.
I have had a good life. Our two children, Mary and David are married. David has two boys, our only grandchildren.
After finishing my BA and getting my teaching license, I taught in Kersey, Colorado for one year. Then Wally needed to finish his doctorate at the University of Illinois, so we drove in our VW Karmen Ghia all our worldly belonging to Champaing, Ill. I was hired at Rantoul, Ill as a fifth grade teacher.
In 1969 Wally needed to return to his position at UNC, but he was still writing his dissertation. I subbed in Greeley for a year while we awaited the arrival of our daughter, Mary. I had the priviledge of being a wife and mother, but needed intellectural activites. I joined the League of Women Voters and became very involved in Greeley's move toward establishing a housing authority.
In 1973 I was elected to the first of two terms as a Greeley City Council member. I know a great deal about water rights and sewage treatment. In fact, I think my name is still on the plaque at the Greeley sewage plant. What a claim to fame!!!
In 1982, I was working in insurance, but was recruited into banking from which I was asked to move to Wheeler Realty in Greeley. But, by 1985, I realized I missed teaching!!!!
So, I went back to school to work on a Master's in reading. In 1986 I was hired by Littleton Public Schools as the reading specialist at Heritage High School. I finished my doctorate in education in 1998, but chose to stay in public education rather than move to college level teaching.
I retired last May, and I am now subbing in LPS. Since my license if for K-12, I get to go to all the schools and all grade levels. I really do love teaching and really enjoy not having sixty-five senior independent studies to read and reread along with another sixty-five to seventy freshmen thematic analysis of Romeo and Juliet. I come home to rest and relax. I guess I will always find something to do to keep busy.
