Teach high school and have forever. Love almost every minute of it, especially sparring with my poor students who have been brain washed by u$c. I got to go to the final 4 in '68 and sit in the middle of the Houston section as our Bruins demolished them. I graduated in Poli. Sci. in '79, started a masters in Urban Planning, began teaching, worked on many political campaigns, and eventually went back to finish the MA in '97. I grew up hanging around campus in the 60's as my mom had returned to school as a dance major. Sunset Rec. Center became my babysitters and the bball players my heros. I now teach History and Government in Downtown L.A. and absolutely love my students. I'd like to warn others that using the university of south central wording, well, it backfires on my kids, many of whom have grown up in south central and don't like their neighborhood trash talked. They are bright and wonderful and I don't want them associated with that place either! Mainly though, it strikes of a similar classism that I hope is never associated with our humane and enlightened university. Let them be the classists. We are a real University! I am so glad to have found BN...most people don't want to hear my ramblings about the Bruins, but here I can read insightful, entertaining, and humorous musings about our beloved school. Thank you.
