I have great memories of my four years at Tech and absolutely no regrets about choosing to attend a (then) all-boys high school. My best memories were of my classmates; too many to list and my Math teachers, like Ms. Berlin, whom I actually spoke to during my career in education. After graduation, I was part of the first class that spent four years at Lehman College, formerly Hunter in the Bronx. I started teaching in New York City public schools immediately upon graduation in 1972. I taught at several schools, including DeWitt Clinton High School, Eli Whitney Vocational High School, and Fort Hamilton High School. I then had the privilege to apply for and get the position of Assistant Principal of Organization at one of the new schools created in 1993: theĀ  High School for Economics and Finance. That led to a parallel move that I could not turn down when I applied for and was chosen for Assistant Principal for Organization in 1996 at Tech rival Stuyvesant High School. I was there on Sept. 11, 2001 and the memories of that day have stayed with me since. Stuyvesant spent about a month sharing space at Tech while lower Manhattan was cleaned. Some teachers I ran into then at Tech actually remembered me all those years later. I can only guess why. My final move was applying for and being chosen as Principal at Norman Thomas High School in 2002, from which I retired in 2009. Thirty-seven years serving the students of New York City was extremely rewarding and it is great to keep in touch with so many former teachers and students now. I left Brooklyn a few years after retirement and now live in Port St. Lucie, Florida, with my wonderful wife Lenora. We enjoy family, golf, playing basketball in our pool and cruising around the world. I will always be grateful to my teachers and fellow students at Tech for setting me on my life’s path.
