I am a 76 year old retired teacher who thoroughly enjoyed working with young people for almost 40 years.

I taught both German and Art and was probably the only teacher in the Fairfax County Public Schools (of over 22,000 teachers) who combined those two certifications. Many of my German students took Art and a few of my Art students took German so I had these students twice each day. I saw them more than their parents did! Many still keep in touch even though they are scattered around the globe.

I loved working with kids and doubled the size of the Language and Art classes I taught! I think kids appreciate a well-run classroom where the teacher knows exactly what he or she is doing, acts in a professional yet friendly manner, demands excellence and earns the students' respect.

In addition to teaching, I counseled students referred by the courts as well as troubled students identified by school administrators, moderated discussions for adults going through crises in their lives and began an Art program for children.

I continue to tutor and am also good at writing resumes and looking for jobs for other people.

Over twelve years ago, I met a very impressive man on the internet who was everything I had hoped to find in a partner. My whole family loved and accepted him. In the fifth year of our relationship, we learned he was suffering from COPD, a disabling lung disease. I did everything I could to make his last years some of his happiest and was with him when he passed away.

I am seeking a pen pal and friend in his late 60s or 70s who is living in the United States, Canada or the U.K. is single, widowed or divorced and is looking for someone to brighten and enrich his life. Perhaps that man is YOU!
