My Life as a Teacher

I am a recently retired math teacher who taught for 45 years in 11 schools in four countries.   My teaching career began in Baltimore City and then Howard County, Maryland, I then took the adventurous step and began teaching for DoDDS (Department of Defense Dependent Schools) overseas.  My first years were spent in Korea, followed by  a few places in Japan, and concluding in Spain.  Presently I am back in Maryland teaching at the local community college.

Being a math teacher is my vocation, my passion, and my reason for getting out of bed each morning. However, photography, provides me with a sense of purpose and relaxation during those non-student hours. Recording the wonders of Asia, Europe, Australia, and Africa has been both a joy and a challenge.

My camera!  While I travel, my faithful Canon is my trusted companion.  She keeps me company on long walks and helps me meet interesting people along the way.  This small black box has provided me with many fond memories of the places and people I have encountered throughout the world.  She has never let me down.    🙂
