"My First Year In Purgatory" is a teacher memoir with illustrations, about my adventures and insights as a Gen Xer teaching in a crumbling urban school district. In it, I lead two... More > semi-functional lives: embattled educator by day –whose students make Damien from the “Omen” look like a lightweight, and urban adventurer by night. I witness teachers driven out of classrooms by students they can’t control, bullies given free reign to torment the weak, chaos that makes learning nearly impossible, and administrators who sweep discipline under the rug. Weekends, I scour art openings, cafes, bars and the Internet for romance, meaning, and escape. As I struggle through my first year, I begin to suspect that that all those movies and books about the “dedicated teacher who won over those tough kids” are a myth; and that there is a crisis in discipline that can’t be solved by lone heroes.< Less

Love being a temporary madness is often heard and it is also heard that it erupts like an earthquake and then subsides. Undoubtedly, the subsiding emotion resulting from love brings a pause when you... More > have to make a decision. You have to work out whether your roots have become so entwined together that it is inconceivable that you should ever part. Because this is what love is. A love Guru, highly esteemed and widely read has said ‘Love is not breathlessness, it is not excitement, it is not the promulgation of promises of eternal passion.

Interesting collection of poems. Autobiographical in nature, arising from the time I made the decision to switch careers from writer to full-time teacher. I was burned out writing for major... More > corporations. There was too much politics and aggravation. I had a license to teach Social Studies earned years before in college as a backup. Why not switch careers! But, making the switch was not easy. The change in job environments made my head spin. One major obstacles was that no school would hire me, the middle aged writer to be a regular teacher. Districts were looking for the young and not the old and bearded. How to break in? I took a job a substitute teacher for a pittance, trying to make contacts to help unearth a regular Social Studies position. I took a job working in a suburban Long Island, NY high school and began my second career. The only problem with that, the writer in me would not disappear while the teacher in me never could rise from the depths.< Less
