I was the principal and administrator of a private Christian academy this past year. I also taught Grade 7 Science and Regents Earth Science at a public school, was the Grade 6-12 Science teacher at a private Alternative Education School, and was a Technology Education teacher at a public Middle School. I retired from the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers in 2004, so teaching is my second career.
I still do informal education for NASA and NOAA and was fortunate to fly on the NASA SOFIA aircraft twice.
I have two children who are both teachers - one in Chicago and one in Tampa and two grandchildren.
