I live in north Alabama with my wife and our dog. Both of our daughters are nearby, as well as our sons-in-law and two granddaughters.
I’ve recently taken an early retirement from teaching after 16 years in an elementary classroom (third and fourth grade). I’m now working as the education director for the Land Trust of North Alabama. I’m also a volunteer educator with RISE Raptor Project.
I’ve had an online presence for quite a while now (I think my first blog post was around 2005) and I’ve moved my site from place to place a few times over the years. My latest blog was at http://www.yetthereismethod.net/ (not online anymore) and before that I was at http://www.yetthereismethod.wordpress.com. The WordPress site was my primary site for most of my online years, and served, for the most part, as a place to stash my teaching thoughts, resources, and materials.
This blog, though, is a place to share my writing about what’s going on around me. Most of it is written in a “Slice of Life” format (especially titles that include “SOLSC”), but this blog might include commentary (not a lot) and a bit of poetry. A few pictures now and then. Maybe the odd video link. It’s hard to tell. That said, thank you for being here!
