I currently live in Savannah, GA. For the last 20 years, I have lived and worked in several places. Since I grew up only in Mt. Lebanon, then raised my kids in NJ, after they graduated from college, I decided I should spread my wings and fly!

I was a schoolteacher for thirty years and retired a while ago. I taught in Freehold, NJ, Escambia Schools in Pensacola, Santa Rosa Schools in Gulf Breeze, and finally Scottsdale, AZ. By the end of my career, I had taught just about every grade from K-8! In the last half of my career, I became a Gifted and Talented Specialist. Most of my years were spent teaching middle-schoolers, where I earned my wings to enter Heaven's Gate sometime in the future! I moved to Austin, TX, after I retired, and worked as a part-time consultant in the Advanced Academics Department where I "graduated" to teaching teachers!

I couldn't wait to quit working, but have found there are aspects of education that I miss. Mostly the belief that I was contributing to society in such a positive way. I worked in lots of schools over the years, but never found one as special as Mt. Lebanon! I am so proud to be a Lebo graduate! I find I can easily pass almost all of the Facebook Quizzes, which they say guarantees me a spot in the top 2% of Americans!!! Who knew my education would serve me so well?!

I did not know Mike in high school; we met at our Mt. Lebanon 45th class reunion.  What a nice guy!  I learned about his service in Vietnam, and he told me about his wonderful family.  I have read recent postings from his son and daughter, and it is very clear how much they loved him. I am certain he was devoted to them.  I remember his charm and wit.  RIP, Mike.  You will be missed....

Hey, Bitsey! I used to live in the west and was a Gifted Specialist at both Copper Ridge Middle School, and Cocopah Middle School in Scottsdale. But I am in Savannah now. I did enjoy that part of the country. Too bad we weren’t there at the same time....
I recently read about your surgery. Sounds like an awful experience! Very brave of you to endure surgery, and I hope you have recovered well. The part about the painkillers (or lack thereof) was interesting. I knew the current opioid crisis would affect legitimate pain patients. I guess these are things you have to ask about now if/when contemplating surgery.
It’s not easy getting old, is it?! As the old adage goes, “old age ain’t for sissies!”
Be well.

“Good things come to those who wait.”
I have always believed you can find love at any age. You are proof! I hope you find much happiness in your life with your new husband and in NM!
Best wishes to both of you! So happy for you!

Just perusing our web site and was reading “Do you remember when?”. Ah...the good old days! How come we didn’t realize those would someday be referred to as the “good old days” when they were actually happening?! If we only knew back then how good we had it....
