Updated July, 2004...
I have recently
completed my 19'th year teaching at Keene State College...combined with
my other positions, Umass, Amherst and Indaina State University, I have
been teeaching for over thirty years. I also spent over ten years as a
college undergradaute and graduate student. This strikes me as amazing
because I was certainly not a student at SHS. I did not become a student
until my junior year of college and did not see education as my career
until after completion of my first graduate degree, when I tried WORKING
and realized that for me teaching was not work, it was (except for
meetings) a "calling". And education is really a life long activity. My
career path developed slowly, so to my classmates who have children who
are still "trying to find themselves", be patient.
