Well, here it is . . . retirement! After 44 years in public education I’m hopping off the treadmill. For some time now I’ve been curious about this blogging thing. Now that I’ve retired I have some time to give it a try. For most of my Life most people have called me Mr. Cowles, so that’s what I’ve decided to call this new online adventure. I’m not really sure where this is going to take me, but feel free to follow along if you’re so inclined.
