I am a mother and grandmother. I worked for over twenty years as a grade school teacher and school librarian. My degree in history included women's history, as well as modern Third World history. I worked for the United Farmworkers Union in California as a field organizer and was active in organizing and demonstrating against the war in Vietnam, beginning in the early sixties in California.
