An elementary school teacher who spent 40 years in Toledo, Copenhagen, NY and Oregon City Schools, Miriam found great interest in Ohio History and Children’s Literature. To make learning more interesting and memorable for her students, she put together classroom skits and that began her interest in theatre. Miriam was instrumental in the early development of the Oregon Community Children’s Theatre that many now enjoy each summer. Miriam’s other interests include the love for reading, golf, boating and she has travelled to almost all of the 50 states. Miriam is a graduate of Notre Dame Academy and BGSU and a past member of the Oregon Choraliers.
