A Visit to San Francisco
In August, we visited Crissy Field, saw my sister and her family's new home at the Presidio, had coffee and bagels in a cafe, saw a movie (Arctic Tale), and rode bikes and ran almost halfway across the Golden Gate Bridge. It was a spectacular day.
After a 30-year career in banking, I'm now an English teacher at Las Positas College in Livermore, CA. My love of education prompted me to serve as an elected school board trustee and to earn my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary's College. My dissertation is associated with two semester-long studies I conducted with student veterans about the benefits of writing about military experience.
For many years I wrote a human interest column for the Bay Area News Group, and this blog is where I posted many of my favorite columns.
