I am an American school teacher, genealogist, photographer and parent.

As a middle-school and high-school librarian I am well-versed in basic research. Students use Wikipedia daily for topics from the arts to the sciences and I try to correct any errors they come across while we're working. I also enjoy helping kids ages 12 to 18 find appropriate reading materials for school work or pleasure. Personally, I enjoy reading and researching a wide variety of topics.

I have found several articles on Wikipedia which are direct 'copy and paste' from other sources. If I am knowledgeable in the subject I have rewritten the entries in my own words. I'm afraid there are others I just didn't feel comfortable editing. Do to this issue, I would like to state for the record that everything I have written here is from verifiable sources and is in my own words.

Association of Wikipedians Who Dislike Making Broad Judgments About the Worthiness of a General Category of Article, and Who Are in Favor of the Deletion of Some Particularly Bad Articles, but That Doesn't Mean They Are Deletionists


Est omnino difficile iudicare inclusionis meritum cuiusdam rei in encyclopædia cum ratio sciendi quid populi referat incerta sit, sed nihilominus aliquid encyclopædiam dedecet

It is generally difficult to judge the worthiness of a particular topic for inclusion in an encyclopedia considering that there is no certain way to know what interests people, but some topics nevertheless are not fit for an encyclopedia.

This motto reflects the desire of these Wikipedians to be reluctant, but not entirely unwilling, to remove articles from Wikipedia.
