WISER Alfred Wiser found teaching at Ames High, as choir director, a very Satisfying experience. He enjoyed the students and his relationships with them. “| realize that sometimes | tended too overly kind and too generous with the students, but | like to think of that as a strength,” said Wiser. He felt that that was one reason he got along with them so well. Wiser’s goal as choir director was to make the experience for the students such a good experience that they would want to continue some form of music the rest of their lives. Music is one of the most important things in life, according to Wiser. This is what he tried to get across to his Students. He also liked to teach the overall view of the musical piece. " Music isn't complete without knowing the composer, the time when written and the political era of the musical piece,” said Wiser. Outside of school, Wiser enjoyed camping, traveling and participating in a church choir. He also liked to put together jigsaw puzzles of places he had been to and things he had seen, and then glue them. This was evident by a large display of puzzles hanging on the music room walls. 166 Faculty Right: Richard White, anthropology, sociology, Honors American History.

That's a good word for Annette Rowley. Commenting about teaching, she said, ۱ love sophomores. They have a lot of enthusiasm for new experiences. " Rowley shared this enthusiasm for new experiences when she spent six months in England with her family. Being close to the rest of Europe, the family took advantage to tour many European countries. She said that they enjoyed every minute of it, and that such experiences help one gain a greater perspective on the world and appreciate one's home and the opportunities afforded everyone. ANT: = n Rowley called the Ames High English department ''dedicated.'' She said that they are always re-evaluating the program to make it better. Because of added English literature classes, Rowley began holding a full-time position on the staff during the 1977- 78 school year. Rowley reflected on one of the lighter moments of her teaching career. " One of my speech students was giving a demonstration on the techniques of karate, and he really knew his stuff. | challenged him to a kick-off and won!”’ Energetic and talented, Rowley was involved in such things as being a dancer in ‘‘My Fair ۷۰ which she described as ‘‘a real challenge.” Regarding the challenges facing high school students, she said, ‘‘Here in Ames kids have so many more opportunities than elsewhere. They have to be careful so that they don't pass them by.” Faculty 165 یه " Kë ا 1 PU di- spa " وت سے سو t een رھ -Af f " T A ےس سر
