I am presently retired having taught special education in the New York City Public School system for over 25 years (Harlem and the South Bronx). Music is another strong interest of mine and while teaching I enjoyed creating songs for the younger special ed population.
My poetry has appeared in the following publications: Confrontation Magazine, The Poetry Review, Poet Lore, California Poetry Review, Poem, Poetry Canada Review, and two poems are forthcoming in the next issue of the Meridian Anthology of Contemporary Poetry. A collection of my poems is scheduled to be published in late summer 2013 by a small press in Troy, New York.
