I am a retired educator. I like to refer to myself as a retired elementary teacher although I spent the last quarter of my career as an administrator. But my teaching years were my best. The daily student teacher interaction, the laughter and frustrations, the little signs of progress, made the work so fulfilling.
I grew up on a very successful produce and dairy farm in Southeastern Massachusetts. Our main cash crop was tomatoes but we raised all kinds of vegetables. They were trucked into Boston. In the winter the dairy supported us. My childhood exposed me to hard work but also to a love for the outdoors and nature.
Out of college I worked for the Department of Defense as a teacher in their overseas dependents' schools. I taught in Istanbul and Seville, Spain. I was able to travel extensively through Europe for three years.
Upon returning to the States I began teaching in Quincy, Massachusetts, where I remained for thirty years. The last seven years were spent as a principal of an elementary school which has a majority population of Asian students. I traveled to China one summer to explore my students' heritage and culture.
In the interim I married Joyce Brothers. Joyce is a case manager for Boston Senior Home Care. Her passion is cooking and she is a graduate of the Cambridge School of Culinary Arts.
She and I have raised two children. Our daughter is a school teacher. Our son, born in Brazil, is a hair stylist.
As a life-long learner I am a proponent of travel. Whether for pleasure or business, travel is the portal to understanding.
