About Me
I teach high school English. I have been a teacher for nearly eight years, a second career (or third?) after 25 years in legal publishing and a few years in small business management positions. I have been looking for a computer based vocabulary improvement program for my students, as a substitute for or supplement to the literature-based work we do now.

Favorite Word:

eloquent
This beautiful compliment has no really good synonym, which makes it a particularly useful word. I would like my students to aspire to the quality eloquence.

Least Favorite Word:

bored
Young people use this word for anything they are not interested in, and many of them are interested in very few things. This word seems to be their only "paint" to cover all the territory in the unknown world.

"For the meaning of life differs from man to man, from day to day and from hour to hour. What matters, therefore, is not the meaning of life in general but rather the specific meaning of a person's life at a given moment."
