Raised on a cattle ranch in the San Joaquin Valley of California. I am retiring after 31 years in public education, most recently as an Academic Coach for English Learner Services. Will be moving to the Portland area in the next year to be close to my two sons, daughter in law and new grandson. I enjoy people, movies, music, good food and wine. I retired my beloved Quarter Horse last year and bought a bike. Will be working as a consultant next year for a publishing company and teaching some classes for Migrant Education at Cal-State Bakersfield. Have traveled a bit in the US and Europe.
