What Was I Thinking: Married/Divorced x 3

A view from my side.


IMG_3079Ok…a little about me.  I’m a 53 year old male.  I’ve been married and divorced 3 times.  I have 4 kids, three boys and a girl.  Their age range is 16 years from youngest to oldest.

I am the Technology Director for a small independent school in America’s deep south.  I have worked in either technology or education since 1982, when I enrolled in graduate school and was a Teaching Assistant.  I am a Certified PK-12 ESL teacher, a Certified Secondary School Technology teacher, and, many contend, just plain certifiable.

I am an Army brat, born in khaki diapers at an Army hospital.  I have lived in 8 states and 2 countries and traveled in three continents.  I am an unapologetic liberal.  I am the product of public schools and have  taught in schools where 100% of the children received free breakfast and lunch as well as schools of privilege.

I have learned from many great and wonderful people over the years, both in formal classroom settings as well as out and about in the world.  I have also learned from many mean and spiteful people. Along the road, I have encountered complete incompetence at the top and undeniable talent in the trenches.  I have witnessed horrible injustice and been the victim of it more than once.  I hope I have not inflicted it on anyone, but I suppose that is often the judgment of the one upon whom it is inflicted.

Oh…I’ve also been known to coach a soccer team or two here and there.

I offer these observations, tainted with my worldview, for your amusement, enjoyment, comment or simply to help you kill time.  So click a post, select a category, view a page, share a comment or a story.  You don’t have to agree with me, but I do require that any comments be in good taste.

Thanks for stopping by.

    married and divorced 3 x. omg. That means you are a regular guy in this day and age. I have never been married. When I had a gf in my mid 30’s, the gf’s mother heard this and said “what’s wrong with him?”
