Mary – I am so grateful that I got to work with you right away when I began at Carleton to offer support for your teaching with GIS (this was before the GIS Lab existed). I found myself calibrating GPS receivers in the middle of the Bald Spot, accompanying high school students in a summer program as they mapped invasive buckthorn in Northfield, and deciding I had the best library job ever conceived. Your generosity of spirit, enthusiasm for teaching, curiosity, humor, and inclusive attitude of “come on, let’s find out,” made a strong impression of what Carleton was all about. I learned so much working with you and will always be grateful for your wise advice and much needed encouragement.
