Personal Commentary

My last 3 years at San Jose State, I was in administration, 2 years as Associate Dean of the School of Education, and 1 year as Acting Dean of the School of Education. I am currently working as a full‑time volunteer in a private elementary school, developing their computer program and assisting teachers with computers. I am also still doing a little writing for children.
