Welcome to the School Bell. After a 32 year teaching career in Brentwood, California, I retired in June, 2007. Teaching is not an easy profession to leave. I am adjusting to a new life, I miss the energy of my classroom and school. I will continue to maintain my ties with education. For now, my main connection and continued contribution to education will be through my website. I started this website many, many years ago when the Internet was in its infancy. It has been so exciting to watch technology immerge into our daily lives. The Internet is an amazing place to share information and resources for the benefit of all.

I hope you enjoy this website and find it useful for your students or children.

I welcome comments and I would like to know where you are from if you send an email.
