Early in April Ed Bruske, The Slow Cook, emailed me with a link to an April 6th article from his blog: A Teacher Crusades for Better School Food and Gets Stomped. If I ever had to justify why I am anonymous, there was the proof in her story. I was floored by what Ms. Heaps went through, but I know my professional life would follow a similar route if my real identity is revealed.
I contacted Ed directly because I wanted the email address of this remarkable individual. We’ve exchanged some emails now and have formed a fast friendship. I asked Mendy Heaps if she would answer a few questions for the blog. She agreed and here are her surprising responses:
***Mrs. Q: Now that’s a real hero. I’m so appreciative of what all of your efforts. I believe you are a pioneer. Great job! ***
