About the Reviewer:

Karen Fields is a 41-year-young University of Arizona student working on a post-baccalaureate elementary education certification. Her inspiration to teach initially stemmed from her work with her own four children, both at home and in their classrooms. After working with the twenty classrooms at Steele Elementary for several years, Karen has become addicted to seeing light bulbs going off in children's heads. She desires to bring a multi-disciplinary approach to education, to actively engage all students, and to make education relevant in the lives of each child. And -- oh yes, she hopes that the power generated in her students' minds may be so significant to be considered as an alternative energy source. :o) (November 1999)
