ALUMNI UPDATE: Carol Levine Paasche

My father was the school doctor, Milton I. Levine, MD. My sister, Annie Levine Parker ’55, also attended C&C, graduating four years after me. She is married to a C&C alumnus, Ted Parker ’55. From C&C I...

went to Elisabeth Irwin High School, and then to Antioch College, graduating in 1959 with a degree in Psychology. I received my master’s from Harvard in Counseling and Guidance. In 1960, I married J. Gottfried Paasche, whom I had met at Antioch. From there we went to the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. I continued my studies in Educational Psychology, while my husband worked towards a PhD in Sociology. We had our first child, Franz, in 1962. Our second child, Denise, was born 18 months later. Our final child, Sara, was born in 1967. By that time, we had moved to Toronto, where my husband was a Professor at York University. When Sara was two years old, I began working at Seneca College, as a Professor of Early Childhood Education. I taught and coordinated studies for 30 years, and then took early retirement in order to set up a parent and child counseling practice. I have also authored two books. After almost 50 years in Toronto, we moved back to the East Coast to be closer to our three children. We also bought land in St. Johnsville, NY, and enjoy gardening and the outdoors. We share as a family a love of the outdoors, eating homegrown produce, and caring for the land. We moved to Newton, MA, two years ago and are settled comfortably in a two-family home (our youngest daughter and her family have their own entrance, and live upstairs). Our older daughter is married to a graduate of C&C—Tony Blofson ’71. I am still in touch with three people from my C&C class—Judith Goode, Penny Tyson, and Mary Diddy Spoerer.
