Personal Commentary

Salt Lake City, UT, was my birthplace. I attended grammar and high schools in Firth, ID, where my primary interest was in music. After high school graduation, I was hired to work in a local bank where I developed my interest in business. Having a relative living close to San Jose influenced my choice in pursuing this interest at SJSU. A friend persuaded me to obtain a teaching credential. The rest is history. I retired as a teacher of business subjects.
