I am a retired English teacher who grew up in a military family and spent my childhood moving from Air Force base to Air Force base. When I graduated high school, and since this life was all I had known, I enlisted. After 4 years, I left the military to finish college. Along the way, I married and had six children, all of whom are happy, successful adults today. I taught middle school for 28 years and now substitute from time to time for my former colleagues.
