About Les

After graduating from Gonzaga University, I started teaching in a Spokane Valley high school. I taught literature, writing, debate and coached both debate and drama. After five years there, I moved across the state to teach in the Bremerton School district at one of the high schools there. Again, I taught English and debate and coached both debate and drama. I was English Department Chair, began a literary magazine which won a national award, won many awards with students entered in debate and drama competitions. During my years at that high school I applied for and received a Fullbright Scholarship to teach college English in Pakistan. With some heavy persuading from the principal at the high school I turned down the Fullbright to remain in my position there. After the levy failed in Bremerton during my sixth year there, I moved across the Sound to teach in a school district just north of Seattle. I taught in the English Department, coached drama and debate and produced/directed three musicals while there.After an interim of doing non-teaching things, I moved into a school district in the silverdale area. My students again won awards in debate and drama. I became English Chair, started a Fine Arts Department and chaired it, initiated a very creative assembly program at the school. My English students became outstanding writers everywhere as I think that is so critical to their success. After retiring, I became a Research Interviewer for national studies sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control.
