Providence Journal Opinion Columns

Running the gamut of poignant and serious to laugh-out-loud funny, my columns in the Providence Journal (a Pulitzer-Prize-winning newspaper) reflect experiences of my 30+ years teaching (all levels) as well as the everyday insane happenings of life. Some of the following Op-Ed’s have gone viral and have been carried in publications far and wide. They obviously hit a nerve or a funny bone.
