Journey of 1,000 Miles - Germantown Friends School

By Teresa Maebori, Retired Lower School Teacher
Mom's life centered on caring for her young family: toddler Stan and infant Teresa. I picture her socializing with other mothers in the community while their husbands worked in the sugar-beet fields.

In the summer of 2014, retired GFS teacher Teresa Maebori went with her mother to Caldwell, Idaho to explore her birthplace-a labor camp for Japanese Americans.

This project and story go back to 1982, when Teresa Maebori, a teacher at Germantown Friends, was disturbed by a student's reference to someone as a "retard.
She wanted her students to move past this kind of labeling and respect one another. To that end, she took a group of them to HMS, hoping they would interact with the challenged children there. Maebori and Green then collaborated on the project.

It all started some 30 years ago when GFS teacher Teresa Maebori wanted her third- and fourth-grade students to make genuine connections with children different from themselves.
She got the idea after an assembly in which some students labeled people with physical disabilities "retarded." "I'm Japanese American, so I knew what it was like to be a minority," she says. At the earliest rehearsals, it was as if something rather magical was happening, Maebori says. For some children who had limited speech, the musical was a chance to sing. Others found different ways to express themselves, perhaps by moving to the music or with facial expressions. "In that first year, we were amazed at the transformation at both schools," says Maebori, who retired last year following the 30th production.
