CHRONICLE Hendershot r BY RYAN FITZMAURICE Nicole Hendershot is re- turning to the classroom af— ter 11 years away. Hendershot previous— ly spent two years teaching fifth and sixth grade in Burl- ington and then taught fifth rade at Lovell Elementary or a year before she made the decision to stay home to raise her children. Education has always been a part of her, Hender— shot said , - “I remember distinc— tivel deciding in eighth gra e, I had an awesome US US. history teacher and for part of our unit we got the opportunity to teach a de- cade of history to our class- mates and everybody else was dreading, and I was so excited. I knew from that point on, there was no ques- tion that I was destined to be a teacher,” she said That’s not to say there hasn’t been a learning curve in coming back to the class— room. Even the grading has changed, Hendershot said “It’s like riding a bike on fire,” Hendershot joked. “Some things are like riding a bike, and other things I have a lot to learn as things change and grow every time. I’ve had to learn the new lingo and the new requirements and things like that.” One thing hasn’t changed, Hendershot said, forming a relationship with her students. “It’s easy to build rela- tionships with kids, and get to know them and help them get better,” Hendershot said. ‘I missed that regular in- teraction with the kids. I missed being able to see them take hold on that new idea and have those light- bulb moments where they really finally get a concept. Just getting to see them light up.” Nicole Hendershot eturns to eucation at Lovel to be back in the fifth rade, too, Hen- dershot sai . It’s an exciting age at which to get to know a child. “I like that they She’s happy have a lot of independence. They’re still relying on you as a teacher to guide their learning but they re at an in- dependent level where they can grasp new concepts and think deeply about what they’re learning,” she said. “They’re fun. It’s a fun group. They’re starting to igure themselves out and I Elementary figure out who they are.” Hendershot teaches just about everything there is to teach in her classroom as one can’t help but do in an elementary classroom, but reading and math is where her heart lies. “Those are my favorite things to teach,” Hender- shot said. “l’ve always been a reader, and my goal is to help my kids find a book that they love and won’t be able to put down. If I can share that with them and help them get there, I’ll feel like I succeeded.” Hendershot said anoth- . er focus of hers is to teach her students a healthy bal— ance between fun and hard work. “One thing I alwa 3 want my students to ta e away is that we can have a lot of fun but we’re not here to just have fun, we can work hard, and play when it’s time to play, and work hard when it’s time to work hard,” Hendershot said‘ “We’re not just produc- ing robots, we’re producing humans.” Hendershot went to Westminster 'College in Salt Lake City, where she grad— uated with a degree in el- ementary education and a minor in special education. She has been a resident of Lovell for 15 years. ‘The Peyote Way’ program Thursday at Bighorn Canyon NRA On Thursday, Oct. 3, the Bighorn Canyon Na- tional Recreation Area will host Johnny Tim Yellowtail, great-great grandson of Robert S.

The roof on my house has been in need-of repair for some time now. For the past few years, it has- been a bucket brigade on my back porch whenever we have rain. Now, we are gettin to the bottom of it. W en the roofer be- gan taking off layers, there were wooden shakes on the bottom layer. A la— bel on those shakes was worn and yellowed certi— fying that they were Tree Life Red Cedar shingles from St. Paul and Tacoma Lumber Co. Manufacturers since 1888. With a little research I found that the company was no longer in business after 1950. But when it was running I found this infor— mation: Upon its comple- tion in December 1900, the combined capacity of the company’s two mills was ’ 400,000 feet of lumber and 400,000 shin les in one ten—hour shit. Between ,500 and 600 men were em- ployed at St. Paul & Taco- ma, making it one of the city’s largest employers. Although this house’s beginning doesn’t go that far back, I’m pretty sure these were the original shakes in the early 19305 when the house was built. With subsequent leaks new roofing was just put over the top. Actually, from by 6 years of age, tion S the outside the shakes looked like they were in reat shape. One look up rom inside the attic and it looked like little blue stars shining through where there were leaky spots in the roof. Anyway, back to the dog. The roofer brings his dog to work with him. The dog’s name is Nix and he is a German Wirehair. I com- mented on what a good dog he was,that he never barks and seems so calm. On top of that he has the dark- est eyes and cutely shaped head. He was instantly my friend. Talking about the dog led to some great stories about his hunting esca- pades. Little did I know that this breed of dog was bred in Germany to work with all types of hunting, feather, fur and waterfowl. According to the owner, Nix is in his glory when do— ing exactly that. The sto- ries of his adventures in hunting, pointing and re- trieving reminded me of being with my grandpa when he would share his experiences as a hunting guide. Although he never used dogs, his adventures were pretty exciting for a young kid to hear about, like the time he followed some young black bear cubs into a cave to come face to face with the momma bear. He was careful in backing out of the cave, and lived to tell the tale. I recently ran across an old newspaper .. d planets in the galaxies?

Under the head- ing SUCCESSFUL HUNT, it reads: “Buffalo” Char— ley Beall, Lovell’s big game hunter and guide, returned last week from a twenty day trip with the Baron Raoul De Kuffner of Rumania.- Beall’s headquarters camp is up South Fork. It was the Baron’s first big game hunt in America. And he greatly en'oyed it. He said this was a unter’s paradise. After taking numerous pictures of elk and deer, he bagged a large moose with a perfect head and a 50-inch spread. Beall also had a sheep hunter from Detroit who was lucky and got a nice ram. Hunters from Okla— homa, guided by him, also den got their game ——deer, elk, antelope and bear. Ow— ing to good weather and plenty of feed, the game is still high up and not com— ing down as early as usual. Charley has a party of four coming the first of Novem— ber from Texas.” I have been hearin re- cently about many av- ing success bow hunt- ing. Growin up, I didn’t hear much a out hunting with a bow, but it seems to be common now. It does seem to even the playing field a little. (No disre- spect to hunters who pack a gun and tramp over hill and dale hunting game.) I understand a ‘real’ hunt- er does both. Good luck to the hunters and the “hunt- ees.” Let the games begin.
