Spent 38 years teaching in, and chairing, the Speech Department at Los Angeles City College. Taught Public Speaking, Voice and Articulation, and Oral Interpretation.  Also worked with speech disabled students.

I have always loved telling stories, but to limited audiences, i.e., church, friends and family. I have recently realized, however, this nation’s youth do not know much about history and the people who made it. They need to hear the stories of the heroes, and the villains, the patriots and the traitors and how their lives affect us today. Moreover, our youth need to know that they can have an effect on the future. Additionally, they should be taught the importance of family history, both heard and told. Hopefully, I can help meet some of these needs and have fun doing it.
