I began teaching Art at Queensbury Elementary School in January 1966. I taught every grade level (1-3, then 4-6, then 7-8) for about 10 years. Then I started teaching in the High School, where I remained until my retirement in 2001, June (after 35.5 years); retiring as the Chairman of the High School Art Department. After retiring, I used my new free time to catch up on some things that I let slide over the years. After a fashion, however, I got reacquainted with the production of art and started painting again. It feels good. I have found my voice. This is how I will end my days. This is my future.
