I'm a special ed teacher that has worked with behaviorally challenged teenagers since I graduated from college in 1978 - except for a few diversions along the way. My educational background is varied: B.A. in psychology, most of the credits needed for an MEd in counseling, teacher certification in secondary science (biology, general science) and mildly handicapped special education K-12. I also have an endorsement in math. Of late I have been studying information technology. I live in central Arkansas. It's a wonderful place to skydive!
I was in the military for about 4 years before entering college and have been around the world 6 times.
I had strong deja vu experiences when I was in Thailand and India.
37) My 2 biggest regrets: Not dating in high school and not finishing a graduate degree in psychology. I learned a lot from the counseling program, but I should have stuck to a more strictly academic track.
38) What's your fantasy, bud? :>) I think people should always examine their own psychology before assuming to understand the minds of others.
74) I'm very emotional for a guy. I cry when I feel it is necessary. I also have cried during movies. I don't like to cry in front of others. I blow my top about once a year. People are freaked. I never hit anyone.
81) The most famous person that I have seen is Bill Clinton. I went to his election celebration in downtown Little Rock in '92
82) I once saw Peter Fonda. I stared at him and it embarrassed him and he went back inside his set trailer. I regret that a great deal. I like him even though he isn't as good an actor as the rest of the Fondas. I guess I was just too shy to go over and talk to him.
83) I have never gotten anything autographed by a famous person. I had a chance to get Robert Heinlein's before he died, but I was too shy. Actually, I do have an autograph of a semi-famous person - Ms. August. I taught the future Playboy bunny algebra and she drew a picture of me and signed it back when she was in the ninth grade. She was a lot prettier when she was 15. *Sigh* - what this world does to us.
84) As a child I loved making skyscrapers out of a kit my father bought me for Christmas in 1960. I would love to have become an architect or at least help in the design process.
