Who I am
Our family returned to the states to Kelly AFB in 1955 so I was a "Yankee" raised as a Texan.
I am also a Scottish, English/Spanish, Peruvian, Inca/Mexican, Commanche, Iroqouis/German, Italian American who was raised as a white. I did not know I was mixed race until I was 12 and a classmate informed me I was a half-breed. We were raised to be color blind and never thought about any race except the human race.
Since I was 9 years old I read every science fiction story I could get my hands on and like to say that I spend half my life in outer space. My imaginary life is quite interesting.
I have one son, who is 36, an intelligent, scientific minded daughter in law, and a precocious granddaughter.
My Background and Career Path
At college I took a required Geology course and fell in love with the subject.
Since most schools are science
teacher poor and PE teacher rich I have taught science every
year as a teacher. I have taught Social Studies and Math as well,
along with a few PE classes a year since 1997.
