Once a high school teacher in a girls' Catholic high school in Brooklyn, now retired. Born in Wales, grew up in London, got my first degree at London University (Geography and Economics), went to Oxford University to become certified as a teacher and then taught in a Catholic boys' school in Manchester, England, for three years. I emigrated to the USA in 1973. I have been a high school principal in three schools, one in Washington DC, one in Woodbridge, Connecticut and a third in Old Westbury, Long Island in New York. I gave that that up and returned to what I love best, plain old teaching in a classroom. Since retirement I have been working on developing a high school textbook based on my years of teaching experience. Up to page 110! I love opera, movies, museums, vexillology (flags), heraldry, music, calligraphy and travel - hence this entry here in AirBnB.
