Summary of my Post HS Life from Classmates.com
After I graduated from PTHS, I attended Trenton State College. I was on my own (emancipated minor) and lived first year on campus, second year off campus house (of Horrors) and last two years in an apartment on Stuyvesant Ave.(suffice to say it was reminiscent of the place Rosemary's Baby was conceived). I survived, graduated, got a job, and got married.
The job was as a fifth grade teacher at Millbridge Elementary School in Delran, NJ. The marriage was to Tony DiCerbo, a businessman I met my junior year of college while working at a movie theater (long story).
The teaching position lasted 35 years; the marriage, ten.
I loved being a fifth grade teacher, and I got heavily involved with the local association (DEA), county (BCEA) , state (NJEA), and attended 28 NEA Representative Assemblies (national association).
After I'd been not married longer than I'd been married, I fell in love with a long time friend I met country dancing named Tom Sallee. It was love at first sight after three years.
We got married a year and a week later.
That was in 1999 and we have lived happily ever after ever since.
I retired July 2006 and our jaunts these 4 years have included Florida, Hawaii, Las Vegas, Reno, California, Ohio, Virginia, North and South Carolina, Arizona, and Arkansas. (Aloha!) We hope to do a lot more traveling in the years to come. (Although...there's no place like home, as Dorothy would say)
If you know my siblings and are curious about their status: Sue is married to Patrick and lives in Pleasanton, CA and has three beautiful children. Jeff was married to Alex and had two sons. He lived in London for 18 years, spent two years living with his family in Pelham, NY, and then passed away suddenly soon after moving with the boys to the Washington, D.C. area to join his wife who had just started a new job there a few weeks before. His daughter from a previous marriage lived in the DC area and was married in April 2012. Now she is in CA without him. Jennifer lives in Santa Clara, CA and has a daughter and grandaughter. All of us ended up in either education or a field of journalism or both.
