Comments:

Well, have been living in Brooklyn, New York for the past 25 years...Boston 5 years before that...
Been working in the field of Special Education in various capacities for the past 35 years...like to call my kids "out of the box" kids...mostly work in early childhood with children, their families and schools, ages 0-5. I am a parent and teacher trainer at Brooklyn College and an independent contractor and love both jobs!

Above all, the "job" of raising my own son...Ben Carlos...who my ex and I adopted from Guatemala almost 8 years ago has been the highlight of my life to date!!

And...I have been an independent political activist building The Independent Movement in this country for the past 25 years which has given me the passion and hope to continue to give and enjoy life as much as I can for myself and others...

Was a founder of The All Stars Talent Show Network which services 3000 kids a year and The Castillo Theatre in NY where I volunteer as a fundraiser and membership person,

School Story:

High school is not a time I enjoyed very much...guess it had a lot to do with wearing my back brace from the first step in SHHS till the end...and it was a good lesson...perhaps was a turning point in my career of working with children with disabilities.

Do remember going to Hough every month to "clean up the neighborhood"...and learning how to dance in the parties afterwards...being friendly with Rochelle Gilbert during the "Black Revolution" and feeling the impact of that on our friendship...
learning from Mr. Wiehe, our American Problems teacher...by writing in a journal that I had opinions of my own...
and not really having a whole lot of fun in high school..,.glad to go to college.

Classmates You Still See Regularly:

Am in touch by email...occasionally see Susie Kravitz, Veronica Zador...just wrote to Pam Perry...ran into Abby Gouldin once...and will be nice to see others next year.
