English / Literature / Writing
Yuba City High - Yuba City, CA, US (2001 - 2009)
I live in a rural farming community about thirty miles from Yuba City. I farm various kinds of fruit, raise a few cattle, an occasional pig or two, and a little "cane" once in a while. There are three large ponds on the farm, so naturally I like to catch fish for sport ,and sometimes for dinner! I am a certified baseball umpire, and I enjoy working with Little League player these days. My hobies include reading, writing, playing with my computers, as well as maintaining and improving the farm, growing both vegetable and flower gardens, and the peace and quiet of living in the foothills of the Sierra Nevadas. I am please to introduce myself and look forward to meeting you!
I retired from Cargill in 2000, returned to college and have been teaching English at Yuba City High School for the last eight years. Each year I teach a mix of classes: 9th grade, 11th grade American Literature, and AP Language and Writing.
