I was a teacher in the Los Angeles School District for 38-years, primarily at two schools, Monroe and Van Nuys High Schools in the Valley. I taught the basic courses in US History and World History, and electives, including Psychology, Comparative Religions, and Ecology. In my last 6-years with the District, I was a Dean of Behavior at Van Nuys High. At one time or another, I was the Social Studies Department Chair, or the elected UTLA “chapter chair” at Van Nuys High for 5-years.
I was born and raised in San Francisco, where I attended City College of San Francisco (AA Degree), and San Francisco State (BA in History/Teaching Credential). After moving to the southland, I attended CSUN (MA in Religious Studies) and UCLA (doctorate in Administrative Studies).
I have been married to a fellow teacher for 44-years. Our children are grown off on their own… One is an assistant-principal in Los Angeles. The other is a principal near Seattle, Washington. We have one grandson and another due in May.
All in all, I’ve been a lucky guy.
