Gamma Alpha Bulletin: GAB

Colleen Retherford, our new Music Chairman, is getting prepared for the March meeting. She has tapes of several Delta Kappa Gamma songs played in a key we all can sing.

Judy Handley, one of our new prospective members, won the door prize of a Delta Kappa Gamma notepad at the February meeting. Who will win next month’s valuable prize? Only the psychic knows!

June Chartrand has not left Gamma Alpha as reported in last month’s minutes. There has been a computer mix-up with the Arizona chapter she attends and she will remain active with our chapter. She may even be able to make an make an appearance at the Birthday Dinner.

You may be wondering why you should get on the World Wide Web. Here are three sites I have discovered and found very useful.

A one stop shop for K-12 teachers. Find links to teacher resources on Grants and Other People’s Money, Teaching and Learning With the Web, International Schools Online, and Online Resources for Educators.

The Activities Integrating Math and Science site features a searchable database of hands-on activities integrating math and science in grades K-9. At this site you will find brainteasing puzzles ( a new one is added each month), plus ways to make math more human by incorporating history into math lessons.

The Explorer database consists of multimedia resources for active learning in the areas of math and natural science. It’s a treasure trove of lesson plans for innovative and fun learning experiences.

Remember Gamma Alpha Bulletin is now on-line. You can visit our web site at If you have information you feel other women in education may be interested in, please let me know. Retirees should also let me know what’s going as well. Deadline for articles for the May Bulletin is April 24. Send your copy to Jackie Smart

If you have any information that you would like to see in the bulletin, let me know - email us!
