Why I Teach What I Teach
I was an airline pilot for Continental/United Airlines. I also have a bachelor's degree in Education in Secondary English and a master's degree in Special Education. After I retired as an airline pilot, it became important to impart my knowledge and experience to others who pursue the art of flight.
Something People Might Not Know About Me
I am an elected official: President of Pleasant Hills Borough Council.
