About Robert

I began teaching in the late fifties at a community college in upstate New York and continued my academic studies at Berkeley and taught several years at the university in Remedial English classes I then began a long career at City College of San Francisco. I taught all levels of college English and lived through the Summer of Love. I was in the midst of a cultural revolution. I have been appreciated beyond my hopes at a difficult and sometimes unappreciated career. As I reach this advanced stage I am still eager to share m knowledge and skills with eager students, no matter their ages.
