Time to Say Goodbye

Julian Teachers Retire After Years of Service

Shull grew up knowing that teaching would be a great career. Shull spent all of her teaching career at Julian Elementary School and says it will be hard to leave behind the students and the funny things that they say and do. Even harder will be saying goodbye to the staff, some of whom were there on her first day 34 years ago. “We’re like a family. We all started out young, went through ups and downs and grew up together,” says Shull of her colleagues, whose mutual support has been

fter serving the students of Julian for a combined total of 80-plus years, Robin Shull, Jan Stone and Sherry Jones, faculty of the Julian Union Elementary School District, retired at the end of the 2012-13 school year. JUESD has not been just an employer to these educators, and teaching is not just a job. Each has felt that this life has been their home away from home, and the staff and students part of their extended family. Year after year, these

Spanish Students Travel to Costa Rica By Ann Reilly Cole ~ the journal


ulian Union High School Spanish teacher Catherine Kuiper knows that to help students deepen their understanding of Spanish, she needs to get them out of their comfort zone and immersed in a culture far removed from the mountain they call home. Kuiper collaborated with Brian Benson of Chill Expeditions to create an educational experience from the beaches to the rain forest of Central America for 23 JUHS students this past spring. The trip was rich with adventure, community service, and connections with the people and landscape of Costa Rica. Chill Expeditions was co-founded by educators whose philosophy ensures a

comprehensive experience. Their hands-on approach using knowledgeable guides integrates culture, geography, biology, friendship and adventure to make a lasting impact on participants. “Everyone wanted to talk with us, to know our story and who we are as a person,” says student Lindsay Cranfield about the Chill Expeditions guides. For Kuiper, the goal is to take the Spanish lesson out of the classroom and into the day-to-day experiences of local speakers. In this way, students become more comfortable with spoken grammar and experience a different culture, which in turn provides more insight into the language. “They learn what is important to different people,” says Kuiper of the experience of

bringing young people to a Third World country. The physically and intellectually stimulating itinerary began in the highlands where students encountered sustainable “off grid” farming in a paramo forest. From there, bilingual guides led students on a hike to Diamante Falls for an overnight backpacking trip. At the cave lodge, students got their adrenaline pumping while rappelling down the waterfalls. Kuiper’s students also learned how to go with the flow. On the day scheduled for surf lessons, uncooperative waves motivated guides to move to another beach. The problem was packing the students like sardines into a caravan of non-air-conditioned

y state law, California public school students in grades two through 11 must take a STAR test for their grade level in the subjects of mathematics, English and language arts, science, and history/social science, unless a parent or guardian submits a written request exempting the student. The test is administered every spring. The purpose of the test is to identify strengths and weaknesses in order to improve student learning. The problem for schools is that the results of STAR testing are returned to the school in August, after the school year has ended. By then, most students have moved on to the next grade or graduated, and it is too late to use the test results to adapt education strategies to help them in the current year. To address this issue, many schools also use benchmark testing during the school year to assess student progress. The Julian Union Elementary School District uses the Measures of Academic Progress, or MAP, test from the Northwest Evaluation Association. MAP scores are generated immediately, with detailed information about each student’s understanding of specific concepts available within 24 hours. In Julian, the MAP test is given in the fall, in February and again in May, each time followed by student achievement meetings where principals, reading specialists, the director of special education, bilingual resource assistant

and teachers examine test results of every student to identify what type of support a student may need to reach educational goals. After the test in the fall, if it is decided that certain students need extra help, they may be assigned to an online reading or math program, counseling or tutoring. In February, the test is administered again to measure growth and determine if interventions have been effective and if they need to be adjusted or continued. After the spring test results are in, teachers will be ready to give students what they need when they return in the fall. The MAP test is thought to be an effective tool because it adapts to individual student responses and provides detailed information about each student’s understanding of core subjects. If a student answers a test question correctly, the test presents a more challenging item. If the student misses a question, the next question will be simpler. The result is a precise snapshot of student knowledge and skill at that moment in time. Currently, since the MAP test is aligned to the STAR test, it is an accurate predictor of how a student will do on the STAR test. In the future, the test will be aligned to the new Common Core Standards, which will be in force in 2014. “I think kids like the immediate feedback and knowing how they did,” said Superintendent Kevin Ogden of the MAP test program. “They like identifying goals, and often run up to me on campus to tell me their scores. Teachers like it, too, since they get data so quickly.” The results of this year’s tests show academic growth in 95 percent of the student body. n

‘Greatest Little Town Parade’ By Bobbi Zane ~ the journal


he Julian Fourth of July Parade is taking a great leap forward with this year’s 20th anniversary production. “A goal for this year has been to make the parade more fun for everyone, so we’ve added several bands to the line of marchers. We’re

thrilled to have a team of Clydesdale horses clomping down Main Street, hauling a hitch occupied by our Grand Marshal Richard Bailey and his family, and we expect to see vintage cars galore,” according to Mike Menghini, chair of the Julian Fourth of July Parade Committee. “This year we will have a full day of patriotic entertainment.”

coming in who have been raised on technology and who easily incorporate it in their teaching. Jan Stone has worked at the school on and off, but feels it is her home. Like a good family that draws you back, she returned in 1986, and has stayed ever since. Stone began as a classroom aide, then stepped up to teach English as a second language when her predecessor broke a hip. Then-Principal Debbie Larkin noticed Stone’s competence at working with Spanish-speaking students and made the temporary job a formal position, naming Stone coordinator of the English Language Development Program. Stone says that there are few jobs where one gets to touch a life so personally. She maintains an interest in her students’ lives and is thrilled to know that many have gone to college or joined the military and have become productive citizens. “They didn’t know they could dream that big,” said Stone. “I want them to dream big.” When Sherry Jones started at Julian Junior High School, she taught all subjects. But for most of her 24 years, her main focus has been teaching science as part of the core curriculum, as well as a variety of subjects such as art, cooking, study skills, P.E. and more as part of the electives curriculum. Overall, however, Jones thought her most important responsibilities were to teach critical thinking processes and to get students ready for the demands of high school. “Information in science changes so rapidly. We can’t teach precisely what they’ll need 10 years from now, so

E-books Are a Way of Life

f you believe a Reuters news agency report, the popularity of electronic books is increasing, with nearly one-quarter of American bibliophiles reading them. This according to a Pew Research Center survey. It indicates that the number of e-book readers ages 16 years and older jumped from 16 percent in 2011, to 23 percent last year, while print-book readers fell from 72 to 67 percent. “The move toward e-book reading coincides with an increase in ownership of electronic book reading devices,” the organization said. Its report analyzed reading trends among 75 percent of Americans who read at least one book in the last year. We checked in with Colleen Baker, branch manager of the Julian library, to get her views on this. “I guess there’s a lot of publicity about the print book going away,” she said. “But we still have some people who check out five books at a time to find three that are appealing enough to read.” She pointed out that interest is far from fading here, when you consider that readership in Julian is up 20 percent. The Julian library adheres to the desires of what she describes as an art community. Through Friends of the Library members’ fundraising, they can obtain newer editions for the racks. “Friends of the Library purchase items that may be specific to readership of this community,” said Baker.

She was asked if e-books might make the reader a little lazier. “Well, I don’t know if that has anything to do with books as much as life in general,” she answered. “Maybe they’ll set a book aside if there’s too much violence. You know the old adage that you can’t judge a book by the cover.” She feels there is always a time and a place for a little fiction. An added survey statistic: More women, 81 percent, read books, compared to 70 percent of men, and the number of readers declines as people age. The trend toward e-books has impacted libraries, too. Well-stocked, they’re ready to meet the demand. “The share of recent library users who have borrowed an e-book from a library has increased from 3 percent last year to 5 percent this year,” according to Pew. Since Amazon introduced its popular Kindle e-reader five years ago, pundits have assumed the future of book publishing is digital. The consensus has been that digitization, having had its way with music, photographs and maps, would have its way with books as well. By 2015, predicted one media maven a few years back, traditional books would be gone. Even in Julian, Baker admits her library is keeping up with the times. Drop in. She has e-books to check out. n

Hubbell Debuts New Structure

n Father’s Day, June 16, one of San Diego’s most prized cultural sites will be open for public tours. This year marks the 30th annual tour of prolific local artist James Hubbell’s treasured home compound in Santa Ysabel. Hubbell is considered an arts leader and one of the founding fathers of natural architectural design. The studio and home tour will explore the eight unique and inspiring structures on more than 40 acres of land, serving as the home of James and Anne Hubbell. A brand-new ninth building will be unveiled at the event — the residence of the Ilan-Lael Foundation. The structure will be used for public interaction, includ-

ing classes, art displays and lectures. This building will also provide headquarters for the business and programmatic duties of the Ilan-Lael Foundation on the art-filled compound. As a space for public activities, the Foundation residence will feature a meeting space to accommodate organizations and retreats, as well as a courtyard amphitheater designed for outdoor classes and events. The Hubbell compound will be open to the public with a morning or afternoon tour between 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person and are available in advance at www.ilanlaelfoundation. org/visit/open-house or by phone at 760-765-3427. See the website for tour location and information. n

Historic San Clemente will serve as the inspiration for these artists, who will paint the city in the open air, as opposed to painting in a studio environment. Participants are limited to entering two paintings, which must be painted on location during competition week and then framed and wired for hanging at the exhibition following the contest. Although this is not a juried show, organizers say that interest is expected to be strong. The public is welcome to watch the artists at work. Highlights include a Quick Draw competition on June 15 from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. in front of the San Clemente Community Center, and Plein Air on the Lawn, June 22 and 23, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Quick Draw paintings will be offered for sale following the judging at 4:30 p.m. The Collector’s Evening Gala will be June 22, from 6 to 8:30 p.m., at the Community Center, where winners of the competition will be

he Julian Woman’s Club’s annual Heritage Quilt Show June 21 to July 4 will showcase an opportunity drawing quilt inspired by Eleanor Burns’ new book, “Quilts from El’s Kitchen.” The Woman’s Club quilt group worked with Burns in her Julian studio, Bear’s Paw Ranch, to make her pattern come to life. Burns, a Julian Woman’s Club member, is the well-known founder of the “Quilt in a Day” books and television program. In 2012, she was selected to be a member of the Quilters Hall of Fame. “It is a gorgeous quilt this year, as always,” according to club member Diana Garrett.

Burns Road Show Returns The Eleanor Burns Road Show returns to the Witch Creek School June 22, with two fun-filled sessions that quilters and non-quilters will enjoy. The theme for this year’s show is based on her book, “Quilts from El’s Kitchen,” that features quilt blocks along with recipes to go with

“This year, the quilt represents items found in everyone’s kitchen, especially Eleanor’s. The colors are reminiscent of the Civil War period, which falls in line with the parade’s theme this year — ‘Historic Julian Celebrates July 4th.’ The founders of our fair city came up from the South after the Civil War and settled here.” Quilt drawing tickets are $1 each or six for $5, and will be available at the quilt show or by calling 760-765-2718.

Take a drive along Farmer Road and you’ll find these signs that tip a hat to Americana. A precursor to the modern billboard, these roadside signs made BurmaShave so famous that one of their verses read: If You Don’t Know, Whose Signs These Are, You Can’t Have Driven Very Far, Burma-Shave. At first, the signs simply provided information about the product. By the late 1920s, they became jingles with a sense of humor. And by the mid-1930s, they included road safety messages. BurmaShave did its part for the war effort during World War II, encouraging the buying of war bonds and collecting of scrap metal with their witty slogans. 1963 saw the last Burma-Shave road

signs when faster speeds made billboards a more practical way to advertise, and Burma-Shave was sold to a company that discontinued them. n

Vintage Vehicle Research replacement was found — a 1915 40-horsepower, fourcylinder Mack engine. The Cadillac chassis was lengthened six feet and fitted with an 18-passenger bus body made by Graham Brothers of Stockton, who specialized in producing these original “limousines.” When finally put out of service, it was sold to Eugene P. “Doc” Woillard, who used the vehicle as an ambulatory clinic at his Miracle Hotel in Little Borrego for the treatment of his patients with electric shock therapy. “As a member of the Julian Historical Society’s Historic Vehicle Committee, I’ve undertaken a research project to uncover new information and hopefully photographs on the life and times of our two historic vehicles, the 1912 Mack motor stage and the 1924 Cadillac Stage,” Beer said. He said searching the archives and photo collections of the historical society and the Julian Pioneer Museum, as well as talking with longtime Julian residents, provided no new information. His search was expanded to the Guy B. Woodward Museum and San Diego Auto Museum in Balboa Park. He did uncover a new photo of the 1912 Mack Stage with the driver and passengers in front of the Kenilworth Inn. “The Auto Museum suggested I visit the California Room at the main city library downtown and look through the business directories for the years the stage lines operated, as there may be ads for freight and passenger services from San Diego to Ramona and Julian,” he said. Other leads point toward the extensive photo archives of the San Diego Historical Society. “Maybe out there somewhere, in a dusty attic, dingy basement or local antique store, is a photo album with the pictures we are searching for,” he said, hopefully. n
