Good to find you online, married and with two children. Bravo!
I was thinking about the good days with you at Colchester Middle School and decided to look you up.
An old friend,
Hello old friend, it is good to hear from you. It appears that things are well for you, and you are in a really good place professionally. I hope everything else in your life is just as good. Life for me has taken a few turns here and there, mostly favorable (although I miss Vt quite a bit), and I have ended up back in the classroom in a small private school in NH. After a decade of administration it is nice to be reminded about what is important again; the kids.
I hope all is truly well with you and you have a great Thanksgiving holiday. It was nice to get this blast from the past.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!
Catherine and I are happily married and have been so for many years. We live in Stonington, Maine on a beautiful Island off of the coast. http://www.deerisle.com Come and visit sometime with your family. We’re not far from Bar Harbor. It is a fishing village and the largest port for landing lobster in the State.
We moved to the Island when Catherine became principal of the K-8. I taught Life Skills to Exceptional Students at the high school. After six years, she left the school, my program closed, and I got myself elected to the school board.
We founded and direct The New England Institute for Teacher Education. All of our courses and faculty who teach for us are vetted through Endicott College (Beverly, MA) and the State of Maine approves our coursework for initial and recertification.
You and I appear to be on the same page, educationally. Diane Ravitch is an outstanding thinker and historian of education. I see that you follow her blog..
In my spare time, I also serve as the minister of the Methodist Church. I was also invited to be on the adjunct faculty of Plymouth State University in the graduate education department.
Life is good. I hope we can connect in a conversation in the near future.
Warm regards, my friend,
