I love teaching! Introducing students to the wonders of the literature is special! And I'm good at it! My fondest memory is teaching a group of sargent want-a-be's at NOVA University (Sunrise, Florida) to enjoy poetry ( "Oh, Captain, my Captain..." and classical literature (To be or not to be...). Relevance - that's what it's all about. Imagine - one of my cops bought his wife a book of peotry for her birthday!
Among the other places I have taught are John Carroll University (Cleveland, Ohio), sundry schools on Long Island, New York and Cleveland Heights-University Heights schools. The world of literature is as old as time and as miraculous as the wonders of space and the fastest computer. Exposing students (and anyone else that will listen) to the mysteries and power of the written word feeds my spirit.
I love to read all types of books BUT my most favorite is the THRILLER. I am pleased to have this opportunity in finding the next Jon Land, James Patterson, Sandra Brown, Christopher Rice, or even J.D. Robb etc. I am looking forward to reading YOUR words.
Good Luck to all of you!
