January 03, 1944 (773) 281-8120 3200 N. Lake Shore Dr., #1703 Chicago IL 60657 Spanish teacher Single Bryn Mawr I graduated from the University of Illinois at Champaign-Urbana in June, 1965, with a Bachelor's degree in Spanish. I received my Master's degree in Spanish and Romance Languages from Loyola University in 1975. I taught various levels of Spanish at several Board of Education schools. Two of the more interesting jobs were at Whitney Young High School and in the International Baccalaureate Program at Lincoln Park High School. I then took early retirement after teaching 35 years for the Board of Education. Post-retirement I taught for a few years at Francis Parker and St. Ignatius College Prep, as well as Columbia College and U. of Illinois.
March 08, 1944 email@example.com 8461 Thurston Rd Pinckney MI US 48169 Retired math instructor Single Again 2 Bradwell I attended Purdue University for 2 years, was surprised that there was no student orchestra (remember how I walked around SSHS with a french horn?), then U of Michigan for a degree in math and grade 5-12 teacher cert. I taught high school for 11 years, then community college until I retired Aug. 2010. I was married for 25 years, then divorced, and I have 2 kids, now 21 and 23. I currently live with a wonderful lady (guess that means not exactly married).
I still freelance as a horn player; I owe the musical part of my life to Sam Gorbach, who persuaded me to study french horn and give up the trumpet.
In my copious free time, I contribute to oedilf.com , which is constructing a dictionary of English where every word will be defined in the form of a limerick(!) Look for me there; my nom-de-lim is Goldie.
Here's a sample of this project:
====== drive out =======
When I worry that nobody cared,
And I wander around lost and scared,
Then a couple of beers
Help me drive out my fears.
I feel confident, loved, and impaired.
======== affable ========
Our existence is frail and precarious,
So be cheery and fun and gregarious!
An affable day
Keeps the doctor away —
Carpe diem, then die. Then they bury us.
======= diplocardiac ========
When she says she loves him and loves you,
When her heart is divided in two,
She's your great tell-it-straight
50-50 your union pulls through.
========= deposit ===========
I'm a very old dog, yes indeed.
My mobility's all gone to seed.
So look in your closet —
I left a deposit;
I took a big dump and I peed.
Greetings to all!

Finished undergrad at Roosevelt and took a Ph.D. in Developmental Psychology from Syracuse in 1969 and I married in 1969 as well. My wife Jeanne and I have been on the faculty of the University of Vermont for many years. My area is human development and hers is early childhood education. I have also served at times as department chair and center director and am currently working on my third book. We have two sons, Dan is a professor at the University of Washington, Seattle and Ben is Chief of Staff for one of the Assistant Secretaries in the Department of Health and Human Services in DC. We also have one very wonderful 15 month old granddaughter. So far, life has been very good to us and living in Vermont is wonderful although it does tend to get a bit cold in the winter. We travel to Italy often, both to visit schools as part of our work and because it's just a beautiful place to be.
I'm not yet sure if I will be able to make the reunion or not but would certainly like to hear from any of you again. I do have fond memories of SSHS and of growing up in South Shore although the fondness may have simply been that growing up in a fairly sheltered world, I wasn't yet aware that other places weren't as privileged as our place. But in any case, it was a good time in my life.
I am also struck by how many of our classmates are no longer with us. Statistically, it is probably about the right percentage but that doesn't make it feel much better. Although I really never maintained contact with these people, I still find myself feeling a sense of loss.
