A memory submitted by Polly Granzow Viehman, Class of 1983, 2009

Everyone has a teacher In their past who made a difference in how they viewed the world. For me there were two; Jeremy Adams and Bonnie Wheeler. I believe I took every course Dr. Adams taught. And I accompanied them to Oxford one summer during which I learned a great deal about medieval history, Arthurian legend, and how to power through lengthy bus rides and castle tours on less than 3 hours sleep a diet heavy on liquid carbs. I wouldn’t trade a moment of the glories we saw and the marvels we experienced.

Doctors Adams and Wheeler pushed us to study hard and challenged us to think for ourselves. I became a history teacher myself, and I hope I can bring the same enthusiasm and passion to my students that Jeremy and Bonnie delivered to me.
