Working on my first book detailing an insider's look to the private side of our public schools. Born in Cleveland with a 25-year history in public service. I have a doctorate in education and have worked at the local, county, and state levels in both K-12 and higher education. Currently on sabbatical caring for an elderly mother in need of 24/7 help, I've given the past three years to the writing of this book. I've everything to learn but consider myself a quick study. I welcome any comments from others and hope to add to the discussions as time goes on. I'm very interested in the use of blogs as a companion piece to written works. I'm an avid reader with over 4,000 books in my personal collection.
