A Little About Myself
This is the first time I've joined a social networking site and not been asked to tell something about myself. I guess i've been conditioned in that way, so here goes...
I am a historian and educator. I teach various history topics at the high school and community college levels. I love, love, love classic jazz. I grew up listening to Coltrane, Miles and many others. I use jazz in my class room to stimulate deeper thinking.
I participate in numerous cultural events. I teach with the arts because I believe that creativity and self expression reveal the highest order of the human intellect . I'm concerned about the future of the planet and perserving it for future generations.
If political labels have a true meaning in the scheme of things, I guess I'm proud to be labeled a "liberal."
I love sports. LeBron James and the Caveleirs are giving Clevelanders a thrill right now,, but I'm a long-suffering Browns fan (no explanation is necessary if you know what I mean).
Personal philosophy: "I love life. Life is good. I'ts not always easy or fair, but life is good!"
