Profile Information

I teach piano in an after school music program three afternoons a week. This is the second time I've done this, the first stint of seven years was seven years ago. This job is one of many that I have had since retiring from 25 years of teaching in the public schools, 20 of those as a special education teacher.

During those years teaching I wrote poetry and children's stories with no idea of promoting them. Last year  I self published a picture book that I wrote and illustrated titled "A Family of Geese." From that story which was based upon observation of the geese at a local park I have created Rufus, a young gosling, that has adventures. I plan to share these with you.

Besides working on the stories of Rufus I continue to paint, to write poetry, to volunteer as a docent at a nature preserve in town, to sing in a choir who entertains school children with songs about nature, and to do research on the web.
