I have taught high school English for 30 years in the Chicago Public Schools, the last 18 at Harper High School in West Englewood, an inner city neighborhood. During my tenure at Harper, I have been the adviser of The Harper Times, English Department Chair, and Technology Coordinator. I spend a lot of time in cyberspace, researching and writing, having posted numerous blogs (this one and Technically Speaking: Harper on the Inside discuss technology and policy issues at Harper High School), two web sites of poetry, and many discussions. A Google search for me suggests that I am outspoken. Others would say I have a big mouth. You judge.
