Stuff About Me:

I was born in Berkeley, CA many years ago.  The school district was number one in the nation and the envy of every nearby district.  However, 30 years later, my beloved schools have fallen into an abyss.  I am a retired public school teacher, and college professor.  Many of my educator friends urged me to return to Berkely and help with the crisis.  I did not know how bad it was until I got here.  More than half of the African American children fail to graduate from Berkeley High School. The academic scores are the lowest in the area.  Now that I'm here, our cadre teachers want to use my method which works very well.  There is none like it.  Currently I am volunteer reading specialist. My students learn to read in less than 40 hours regardless of native language or learning differences.  We are here to teach and we will not turn away the children of South Berkeley.  Please help us save some kids!
