|Lakeside School couples global travel, education|SEATTLE TIMES
Inside a small adobe home in a remote Peruvian mountain town, with one bed for a family of six and about 70 guinea pigs roaming the floor, Nick Dykstra, a senior at Seattle's exclusive Lakeside School, knew he wasn't in the land of privileged American teenagers anymore.
Carey Quan Gelernter was a reporter and editor for more than 30 years, most of them at The Seattle Times, before coming to Lakeside this August. She had many jobs during her tenure at The Times, from features reporter to editor of special sections such as the College Guide; Footprint, the paper's environmental quarterly magazine; and Gender: F, a magazine aimed at young women. She has a bachelor's degree in Modern Society and Social Thought (or 'Mod Soc" -- hey, it was the '70s) from U.C. Santa Cruz and a master's degree in journalism from U.C. Berkeley. She lives in the Rainier Valley with husband Jerry Large, a columnist at The Seattle Times, and 17-year-old son Tao, a senior at The Northwest School.
