How did you hear about us?

I have know about cfi for some time. My neighbor, Tim, introduced me to your coffee klatch group. As a science teacher I have had to weather many storms generated by local school boards, and parent groups who did not agree with the teaching of key biological concepts. As a science supervisor in a large K-8 district I called on Eugenie Scott to reassure my teachers that it was ok to teach the state curriculum pertaining to evolution. I have served on numerous committees to write educational objectives and evaluate science text books. I have battled those of little thought all my life. I am most proud of my 25+ years of work with both Oklahoma and California Science and Engineering Fair students and board of directors. I am looking forward to utilizing my background and skills as a certified naturalist (National Association for Interpretation).

Like our parent organization, our goal is, "to foster a secular society based on science, reason, freedom of inquiry, and humanist values." Are you in agreement with this goal? If you are not, please explain why you want to join.

I am in agreement.

What would you like to gain from your membership in our group?

The comfort of talking to like minded people. Not having to guard what I have to say. Being able to learn from others who's thinking I value. To be able to enjoy social events and grow new friendships. To find new ways of educating others to think critically.

Introduction

I am a retired science teacher who is still somewhat new to the area. I am happy about finding this great group of thinking people.

What Janet H. is saying about this Meetup Group
