I’m a compulsive communicator. Previously I’ve spent time as a frustrated aspiring humor writer and political cartoonist, but now I prefer to focus on building people. It’s just as quixotic, but much more positive.
I’ve been blogging since 2002 at http://tedscolumn.blogspot.com. I liked Blogger, I have nothing against Blogger, but let’s face it, WordPress now the industry leader. So far, I’m enjoying it’s functionality, not to mention search engine optimization and community.
Occasionally I draw, paint, design, take photos and write poems. I teach MS Civics, MS/HS Art & Yearbook, & coach HS Cheerleading. I’m also a husband and a dad. In my spare time I curmudgeon.
My personal goals are to lose weight, be more positive (so much for the curmudgeoning), follow Jesus more closely, start asking more questions, and encourage my students to do the same.
