Yes, I taught in The Bronx. Many of my students made it all the way to great jobs. Charlie has a Master in Social Work, Keyla is an Speech Pathologist, Jennifer is a Nutritionist, Félix is a Marine and is studying Military Psychology, Pepe has a Master in Computers....and the list is long and I am extremely proud of them.
Whenever they asked me about my beliefs I told them "I am an Atheist." Their questions / answers were a lot more intelligent than those presented by most adults.

Thank you...but the success is not mine but the result of many colleagues. We always believed in our kids...and they knew we did.

My most-likely-very-soon-to-be-ex is from New Zealand and we have done Maori, and Hawaiian, inspired hand carved jewelry at the retail and wholesale levels for several years. I absolutely love New Zealand--especially the South Island. If I were to live there--it would be in Dunedin.

Loving animals and having a connection to New Zealand, i thought that might interresst yuou..

I've been trying to figure that out for quite a while. But essential I write: ads, copy, Web content... comments on Web sites and blogs, and books and novels.

Thank you Kreig. Several things I am proud of. At the college level, I teamed with my department chairman to create a teacher education program which won national recognition. As a staff development and school improvement center founder and director, I created and implemented a number of programs which also won state and national recognition. Among them were (1) a training and support program for beginning teachers to maximize their chances of success, (20 training and supporting school improvement teams in schools, with the result of substantially increased student achievement, (3) training school principals in evaluating teacher performance and assisting low performing teachers in improvement or separating them from service, (4) writing a training program to assist special educators in working with regular classroom teachers in working with handicapped students. It was fun!

I used to teach English language and literature overseas, in the Middle East and Asia. After fifteen years of that, I'm back in the States as a freelance indexer. I compile those things in the back of the book where you find stuff.

I was in South Korea, the UAE, and Japan. Yeah, each place had its ups and downs, but I feel "blessed" (HAHA) to have had the opportunity to be there. I guess I had some impact, since I still keep in touch with students (mostly Japanese) I had 20 years ago.
