Any general bio information

After retiring from the Navy, I went back to school for teaching credentials and have been teaching high school for four years. I had enjoyed teaching math in the Navy (one tour of duty) and have enjoyed teaching in high school. High school is a great deal more challenging than the Navy.

Any major interest outside of education?

I've always enjoyed going from point A to point B by the slow, scenic route (caving, scuba diving, swamp-water canoing, depending on where I've lived). Recently, I've become more interested in the arts. Last year, I dropped in on the high school art class as often as possible during my prep period. It was very interesting, not only from the art standpoint, but also observing the art teacher's methods, and seeing a few of my students in a different setting. As time permits, I want to keep up with sketching practice.
