As you may have heard, I have retired from public school teaching as of June of 2013. As I believe I have had the honor of positively affecting the lives of many of my students over the years, my retirement came with some regrets and hesitations. However, having served in Lynwood Unified School District for the past 18 years and in Long Beach Unified School District for 6 years before that, I feel that I am ready to start a new part of my life. My retirement goals include going back to school and working towards a PhD in Physics. Hopefully, I will have the energy to accomplish these wonderful and challenging plans. I am keeping this page up for archival reference and for any one that might benefit from it:
