I have two children in their teens, a full-time job teaching non-native born Americans to study in English, a house to keep up, two dogs and a cat.  I have read all of John LeCarre's portfolio and am waiting for his next entry.  My current favorite author is Nelson DeMille, waiting for his next entry.


This year I plan to frequent "open mike night" at a few local taps.  I am a guitar player.  This will keep my chops in shape. 


I am the English as a Second Language teacher at an inner-city middle school.  My interest is in preparing those who neither read nor write in English, to attend high schools locally, and not drop out.  I do this by teaching them to read and write.
