The Access Excellence Periodic Tableau

Our roving reporters collared unsuspecting Fellows for off-the-cuff, "Hominid in the Hall" interviews. As a reward they got to dig into the Hominid Grab Bag for rare and unusual prizes.



Dee Millard
Barton High School in Marianna, Arkansas




Q:How did you recover from grades and finals?

A: Artistic expression. We ended the school year on May 29th, and I then commenced painting my son's bedroom. The motif was Hunter green and cream beige.

Q:How do you feel about having this interview on the 'net'?

A:"Ooh, scary!".

Kansas School for the Deaf, Olathe, KS



Q:How did you recover from grades and finals?

A: After the last day of school I and fourteen fellow teachers (both hearing and deaf) and their children ventured on a canoe trip. Navigational communicating on the river was a real challenge and extremely exciting. Imagine canoeing down a river, riding horses, and camping out for three days. Next year, this escape could be a terrific release after finals. Try it.



Phil Talbot
Skyline High School, Salt Lake City, UT

Q: What food does the summit remind you of, and why?

A: A salad and granola bar. Everything in this workshop is healthy and is lacking in fat.

Q:What have you done on your vacation been so far?

A: No vacation time! I went to an AP reading, a hemophilia camp, and came directly here. I did do my laundry, however!

Q: How do you expect AE to change your teaching 'style'?

A:Having access to the WWW and connection to other teachers will be a great benefit. Learning how to get on to the web, talk to other teachers online, talk about and download activities will really help my classes.



Richard Norris
R11 High School, Maries CO

Q:What food does the summit remind you of, and why?

A: Dessert, because it is the best part of the meal.

Q:What have you done on your vacation been so far?

A: What vacation? I'm on a 12 month contract. My wife did my laundry for me.
