In Memoriam

Carol “Flea” P. Wales

Carol “Flea” P. Wales taught in the Lower School at Bush from 1972-1996. She was the recipient of the 1985-1986 George Taylor Sabbatical, an annual award presented to distinguished faculty members at The Bush School. Before Bush, she taught primary grades in Connecticut and in Kelso, Washington.

She was involved with her children’s schools, Girl Scouts, youth sports, and church programs as a parent volunteer. She is remembered for her passion for family gatherings, teaching, exploring, and learning about different cultures. She loved to travel, which is highlighted by trips to Europe with her daughter, Polly, and sister, Peggy, as well as travels to the East and West Coasts to visit extended family members. She took many kayak and rafting trips throughout the San Juan Islands, western United States, and Mexico.
