I taught science , mathematics and computer science for 36 years (29 at Liberty HS) at the high school level. Although I still enjoyed my job VERY much, I retired two years ago. I still coach three seasons of running at Liberty HS.. I am a volunteer Emergency Medical Technician with my local ambulance corps. I have been married for 37 years and have three children and two grandchildren. My passion is hiking. Most of my hiking is in New York State in the Catskills. My long time hiking companion, Sheba, a shepherd-collie mix, is no longer with me. She succumbed to old age and Lyme disease on December 7, 2012. I miss her! My new dog, Sheila, a yellow lab mix, is proving to be a good companion on the trails.
