I’ve been teaching since 1997- mostly in schools even smaller than Berkeley. I’ve been at Berkeley for 7 happy weeks!
Here’s a list of the most beloved things in my life (probably, but not necessarily in this order): my wife, Kate; our teenage kids, Anya (16) and Ben (nearly 14); our two cats (Chloe and Bob); two battered topper sailing dinghies (Topsy and Buttercup), and rugby (Bristol and England).
