L-R: Judy Valentine, Westerville Teacher Lisa Kuhar, Michele Koenig
  

At our November 12 meeting at Max & Erma's in Gahanna, we learned a great deal about new teacher licensure from Westerville City School teacher Lisa Kuhar.

Our chapter members learned that the process of becoming a new teacher in 2016 is quite a bit different from the days when we began our careers in education. Standards and requirements have changed and are much more involved and stringent. Lisa gave a very informative and interesting talk about the process involved in staffing our schools with the finest new teachers.

  
THE HAWK GALLERIES: MARCH 11, 2017

On Saturday, March 11, we met at The Hawk Galleries on Main Street downtown to view and enjoy exquisite artwork and learn about the techniques and practices involved in creating them.

Brandon Brown, a Hawk Gallery Assistant, took us on a tour and explained the history of several of the pieces. Brandon has studied glass blowing at The Ohio State University.

Below are photos and videos of some of the beautiful and mesmerizing glass sculptures and casts that we enjoyed. We thank Hawk Galleries' owner Tom Hawk, and his assistant, Brandon Brown, for this memorable artistic journey into the world of glass.
     

The piece below was created by Ohio artist Christopher Ries, and is one of several incredibly beautiful examples of the artist's work. See more Christopher Ries creations here.
Below, Brandon discusses artist Bertil Vallien's technique of sandcasting to create Janus Heads. The heads represent Roman gods looking into the future, and involve a multi-step process.
The $1,000,000 creation below is entitled "Passage" and is also the work of artist Bertil Vallien. Brandon Brown explains the sandcast creation.
In the video below, artist Bertil Vallien explains the backstory of his $1,000,000 creation, "Passage," a truly incredible work of art.

SEPTEMBER 2016 MEETING: RELEASING THE MONARCHS

At our September 13, 2016 meeting, Michele Koenig continued our education about monarch butterflies and we were able to see the various stages of their development. Then we went outside (what a perfectly gorgeous day!) and Michele released several monarchs into the gardens at Westerville North High School.

As part of her work with Monarch Watch, Michele tagged a butterfly with a tiny sticker that will help track this beautiful creature on its journeies.

  
JUNE, 2016 MEETING: BEAUTIFUL MONARCHS

At our June 14, 2016 meeting, Sarah Dalton, a retired MetroParks of Columbus and Franklin County Senior Naturalist, discussed a life cycle and purposes of the Monarch Butterfly, and shared many interesting facts and stories about Monarch migration and habits. She used visual aids to demonstrate how butterflies ineract, and how they lay eggs by the thousands. Sarah brought along tiny caterpillars and explained that their striping warns predators that they are poisonous at this stage.

Sarah also emphasized the importance of protecting Monarchs through environmental measures, adding that their natural habitats need to be preserved.

APRIL, 2016 MEETING: THE IDITARAD

Our April, 2016 meeting focused on the implementatoin of The Iditarod as a cross-curricular subject at The Wellington School.

Gamma member and Wellington teacher Dorene Henschen and her fellow teacher, Becky Fuller, explained how aspects of the Alaskan dog sled race are incorporated into each subject area and at each grade level to create a cohesive focus for part of the year's studies.

Dorene displayed many artifcats from her trip to Alaska to explore the multifaceted Iditarod, and gave examples of specifics lessons in which students participated, all of which used principles of the race in every day activities. She played a video that demonstrated the various lessons, as well as the ways in which students learned.

TRIBUTE TO EILEEN YOUNG BY JOANNE KATONAK

Gamma Chapter of Delta Kappa Gamma International mourns the passing of our longtime member, Eileen Young. Eileen died of a stroke on Wednesday, March 15, 2017.

Joanne Katonak wrote the following tribute to Eileen, inspired by the letters of her first and last names.

You can print the poem here.

 

EILEEN: E-I-L-E-E-N
   
E - ENERGETIC! Whether she was working on a project at home or for an organization or church, Eileen would go full speed ahead until each task was finished.

I - INTELLIGENT! Whenever Eileen wrote something for work, or for a project for some organization, or church, her sharp thinking skills surfaced.

L - LOVING! Eileen was especially devoted to her family. She took excellent care of her aging mother. Even as her mother turned 100, she still went to visit her almost daily. And she was always a part of the lives of her nieces and nephews.

E - ENTHUSIASTIC - Eileen was an enthusiastic traveler. She enjoyed going to new places and seeing new things, and meeting new people.

E - EDITOR - Her last job before she retired was as an editor for publications for federal programs within the State of Ohio. Her professionalism always produced excellent publications. One time I had a grant to write for work. When I got it written, I took it to Eileen for editing before I submitted it. She changed a word or a phrase there and added some thoughts of her own to make the document better. I sat there listening to her and thought to myself, "Now why didn't I think of that?"

N - NEIGHBOR- Whether on Hampshire Road, or at the condo in Columbus, or her home in Florida, Eileen was always sociable and willing to give a hand to a neighbor when needed.
  
YOUNG: Y-O-U-N-G
   
Y - YEOMAN DOG LOVER - As long as I can remember, Judy and Eileen had dogs. Big dogs, little dogs, sleepy dogs, active yappy dogs; Penny and Patchie being the last. Eileen loved them all.

O - OUTSTANDING FRIEND - If you needed anything, Eileen was there to help ... for Judy, for Sharon, for fellow church members, or as a support for people who belonged to the same organizations that she did.

U - UNINHIBITED BOCCE BALL PLAYER - Since Eileen's activity of playing bocce ball was something she did in Florida, I never got to see her play. But knowing Eileen, I am sure that she was no "wimpy" player.

N - NEWSPAPER DEVOTEE - Every morning with a cup of coffee, with cream, or in the bathroom, Eileen devoured the paper. Even after her stroke, she wanted to know what was in the paper. So friends and visitors read it to her. The last visit I made to see her, she asked me to hold the paper so that she could read it herself.

G - GOD-FEARING CHRISTIAN - Eileen loved her churches and the people in them - both her early membership at Good Shepherd, and later here at Faith. I am sure that when she gets to heaven, God will have a job for her, and she will get it done.

SEPTEMBER 15, 2015: TYLER FLYNN, COLUMBUS TUTORING INITIATIVE

At our September 15 meeting at Panera Bread on Bethel Road, Tyler Flynn, Senior Fellow and Initiatives Team leader of Mission Columbus spoke about the success of their Columbus Tutoring Initiative, which is a joint venture between Mission Columbus and Central Ohio Youth for Christ to provide in-school tutoring for elementary-age students whose reading skills fall below their grade level.

Each tutor works with an assigned student once a week from October through April for approximately 40 minutes (lunch and recess). All tutors receive an orientation in three areas: tutoring, the social and ethnic background of the students, and how to develop a relationship with their student. Tutors work from individualized folders prepared by the student’s teacher that include books, word lists, and comprehension exercises that are appropriate for the student’s reading level. A volunteer coordinator is on site to oversee each session. More than 300 volunteers are serving in the current school year.

The participating schools include:
Columbus City Avondale, Sullivant, Starling, Binns, Cranbrook, Weinland Park, Fairwood, Berwick
South-Western Harmon and East Franklin
Hilliard Avery, Beacon and Crossing
Dublin Olde Sawmill, Riverside and Daniel Wright
Westerville Wilder, Pointview and Hawthorne
Private Harambee

The Columbus Tutoring Initiative is always seeking qualified, enthusiastic volunteers to tutor these elementary school students. If you are interested in offering your services, please visit this page of the TutorColumbus.org web site to learn more, watch videos of current tutors speaking about their experiences, and to sign up.

Questions? You can email Tyler Flynn (our speaker) or call him at 614-761-3638.

         
JOANNE KATONAK EXPRESSES THOUGHTS IN DISPATCH LETTER

In a July 12, 2015 Letter to the Editor, Joanne Katonak expressed her feelings about the various ways people react to tragedy, and suggested a lesson that was taught by the residents of Charleston SC.

From The Dispatch: July 12, 2015:

In Ferguson, Mo., one man was shot unfairly by police, residents thought. So they rioted, burned and looted for days. In Baltimore, one man died while in police custody, and residents rioted, burned and looted for days.

In Charleston, S.C., nine black citizens were shot during a Bible study by a man committing an alleged hate crime. Residents of that city came together, prayed, loved and forgave.

Lessons to be learned from the residents of Charleston: forgiveness and amazing grace.

JOANNE KATONAK'S POEM ABOUT OUR SEVEN PURPOSES

Delta Kappa Gamma was founded so educators could unite,
And enable their professional growth to attain a new height.

The twelve founders in Texas adopted seven purposes.
To unit, honor, and advance the education profession was quite a feat,
For back in 1929 in secret all twelve had to meet.

To endow scholarships and grant fellowships to teachers world wide,
Meeting these goals over the years has given the organization much pride.

Our focus today is purpose number six;
Personal and professional growth of members--
The combination of these two goals makes a good mix.

There are many ways to help yourself professionally grow;
Taking classes, attending and leading workshops;
Or off to Delta Kappa Gamma Conventions you can go.
There are blessings of meeting members from other places.
And at conventions, connecting with familiar faces.

Spending time with the family, visiting friends,
Reading good books and engaging in regular exercise
All will bring happiness and good health.
Our personal and profession well being will be our wealth.

Proud, educated, active Gamma ladies are we.
Setting about carrying out our seven purposes,
Suits our chapter members to a "T."

~ Joanne Katonak, 2015

Allison showed us feathers from turkeys and quail, as well as a taxidermic example of a mink. Especially interesting was a deer antler, which Alison shared with us, describing the development and shedding of the antler, along with the detrimental results of deer overpopulation in the parks.
   

SEPTEMBER 9, 2014: SARA HAYES DISCUSSES ECOT

At our September 9, 2014 meeting, Sara Hayes discussed e-learning, and specifically, her experience as a teacher for ECOT (Electronic Classroom of Tomorrow).

Sara explained that today's generation of students is comprised of "digital natives"; in other words, they are children who were born into the digital/computer age. They have different learning styles, needs, and wishes regarding the way they learn about the world around them.

Sara's Powerpoint presentation discussed the differences between e-learning and home schooling, and explained that for some students, e-learning can be an excellent choice: students who have health challenges, those who are victims of bullying in traditional schools, and extremely self-driven students can all be excellent candidates for e-learning. Sara stressed that e-schools must meet the same criteria as public schools on all levels.

The following videos give more insight into ECOT:

NOVEMBER 20, 2013: JOY REYES FROM COLUMBUS LITERACY COUNCIL

At our Saturday, April 20, 2013 Gamma meeting, Joy Reyes, Executive Director of the Columbus Literacy Council visited and spoke to our group about the work of the Council.

The Columbus Literacy Council is a volunteer-based organization dedicated to increasing the level of functional literacy of adults reading below an 8th grade level through teaching the English language skills of listening, speaking, reading, and writing.

Joy explained some of the challenges that the Council has faced through the years, including funding cuts that led the organization to reorganize and use volunteers to staff their programs. The results have been extremely positive, and the Council serves more than 3,000 students each year, making it the largest private provider of adult literacy services in Central Ohio.

The Council was founded by Church Women United in 1970 and was formally established as a non-profit educational corporation in 1975.

Below, Joy discusses why learning English is especially challenging for some of their students.
