More support for UNM-LA

-A A +A

I moved to Los Alamos in 1969. At that time there was no institution of higher learning present in the community. The community was negotiating with University of New Mexico to establish a branch. They wanted a way to enhance the learning opportunities for those in the community. In 1970, UNM established a branch and it became known as UNM-LA.
I was the first biology teacher hired at the new branch. For the first seven years I taught general biology, plant taxonomy, human anatomy and physiology and ecology. Then later I taught community education classes. In the early years, we were housed in what is now L-Wing of Los Alamos High School (presently home of the Pajarito Environmental Education Center). There were a handful of us teaching the basic college courses. It was both an exciting and challenging time. Resources were limited. I had to conduct my labs in the high school with the wonderful cooperation of the high school teachers.
