A Marine Major with 31 years in uniform & combat tours in Vietnam and the Gulf War. He has faced down fear, hunger, pain, death, grief, and cancer, but it was retirement that proved to be the one challenge he couldn’t navigate. So he got his Masters and became a teacher. But not just any teacher. As a 3 Time California Teacher of the year "Monsoon" teaches the kids that society deems expendable, the kids who often agree with that view, having never been taught otherwise.
