“I’m a retired teacher, who taught in Detroit, just walking my dog.”
What was the best part about teaching?
“I would say retirement, but I’m just kidding. The kids I worked with were in Special Ed. That was the most rewarding experience for me. I really didn’t plan on doing that; I was going to go into a science or medical field. But, after I got out of the service, I was starting to feel a little old, and figured I’d do teaching. Teaching was my second choice. It was always about working with the kids, thinking I could make a difference.”
