Beginning in seventh grade study hall in the auditorium balcony of Willis Intermediate School I began drawing my first maze, and the excitement of dead ends and hidden images still continue 17 years later. Now, as a middle school teacher telling my students to follow their dreams, I am fulfilling my middle school dream of allowing others of all ages the chance to explore Mazes of the Century.
