Occupation: I retired in 2013 after 35 years of teaching; 28 years at Nathan Hale Middle School in Norwalk, and the remainder at Newtown Middle School. I started out as a math teacher. In the early 1980s, when desktop computers were coming into popularity, NHMS started buying PET computers. They were huge, and had only 8k of memory. We started a computer integration class, and that’s what I’ve been doing ever since. The computers changed all the time and kept it interesting.
