About Gail Boushey
Gail and her sister Joan (Moser) grew up in a small town and farming community with four other siblings.
"When we were little, our parents bought a piece of property that included an old, condemned girls' academy. Having a huge, empty, four-story 'playhouse' in our backyard, our days were filled with pretending and playing with our siblings. We each had our own room in this dilapidated building, many of which were classrooms complete with the warped blackboards of old. This imaginative play led to the magical type of 'teaching' only a child could understand. It is no wonder three of our six siblings became teachers!"
