I totally agree with Lee. I also happen to love MaryAnn's books, and =
have most of them. There is nothing preventing any one of us from =
writing books, why should her presence on this list be such a threat to =
you guys?!

She is an educated and experienced teacher, who has a lot to add to list =
conversation. I am on several other lists with her, and her presence =
and comments are always welcomed. =20

any one of us, with our experiences and talents, could write books like =

and "make tons of money". But she is the one going out there and =

I rather enjoy her ideas and have found one or two I will be using in a =
