I am a high school US History teacher in Alameda, CA. I have been teaching for 27 years, and am nearing retirement. In the last 2 years, I have returned to my original love, playing the drums. I love reading history and STILL love teaching! I am hungry to discover more parts of the world: New Zealand, Argentina, Souther Italy, Scotland and Ireland, and to return to well-loved and remembered treasures: Siena, Umbria, London and Wales, and Kyoto and Tokyo.
