I studied in Valladolid in '73 with Karen Spishok Acebal, Fr. Sam Esposito and Rose Ann Ruoti Hill. I I graduated from IUP in 1974 in SpEd.and finished my cert. in French that summer. I taught Spanish and French for 36 yrs. in Lock Haven PA where I live with my husband Wayne McColloughBS'74 in science. We have 2 grown children and we took them to Spain and France in 2001. In Valladolid, I lived with the Leonardo's on Independencia near the old train station. I remained friends with the family through Loly for 35 yrs. by letter and phone until she passed away a few years ago and now I keep up with the family through her nieces on FB. I am happy that my children, Marisa and Jordan, got to meet Loly in 2001. We haven't been back since then but now that we are retired here we hope to travel go Europe again in the future.
My education at IUP-Valladolid was the best and the Keystone Central SD where we taught employs 2 other Valladolid alumni, Bob Piper from the 80's and Jessica Whipple 2001. The professors at Lock Haven Univ. agree that we speak Spanish the best and loved us to take student teachers. I am so glad to connect with all of you.
