q IIILlilI|HWIIIHiD/Ilia Page 4 The CATALINA ISLANDER Friday, June 30, 2006 Ur not that old I did not leave the principaiship in 1956, 50 years ago (I would have been 9 years old). I left Aval- on School as principal in 1996, 10 years ago! I know I'm old, but not as old as Chuck Liddell thinks. I left my fir-st teaching assign- ment in Avalon in 1976 and returned as principal from 1990- 96. It was nice to have students of my former students while I was principal. Since then I have retired from LBUSD (in Jhne 2004) after 35 years! Regards to all my former students, fellow teachers and friends. Retirement is grand!
