Devoted to her family and loyal friends, Madison balances her busy schedule with travel, entertaining her love ones in her home, and reading unique books that keep her guessing. Her greatest mentors are her parents and she believes her greatest accomplishment has been help

My childhood memories of school teachers include smiling nurturing women, who dressed professional every day, smelled very nice, and wore an apple pendant and navy blue at least once a week. Most of them had gray hair and almost all of them could write straight on a chalkboard. By the way, I am a child of the 80's so some do not assume I grew up on "Little House on the Prairie".

You too, Francis!




Francis Ray Hi Madison,
It's very nice to meet you. Take care and continued success.

Dr You might want to initiate a newsletter to teachers. Most of us would be able to submit names of active teachers and I know there are many retired teachers who have relatives and children now teaching. I gave up teaching eleven years ago to pursue a career in rest and relaxation, but found a few other things a little better than that. I have a friend who began a newsletter thirty years ago for his friends in real estate. Look at him now with about 40,000 followers
