Linda Kane, volunteer--A.D.O.P.T. & FVAWL

@redhawkqueen
I am retired after 35 years of teaching English and Journalism, the last 24 at Naperville Central High School. I created the Journalism program and advised The Central Times, a nationally recognized high school newspaper.
Now in my second year of retirement, I continue to volunteer with Naperville's A.D.O.P.T. Pet Shelter as an adoption counselor and a foster mom for cats and kittens. In addition, I now write features for Fox Valley Animal Welfare League (FVAWL) who will open a state-of-the-art low-cost spay/neuter clinic, the first in the Fox Valley area, during February 2012.
