Andrew has been teaching American Lit and AP Lit at Salesian High School in Richmond, CA, for 22 years. Before that he spent ten years working construction; 10 years driving long haul semis (these while returning to school and raising his son by himself); about 6+ years in the wholesale and retail flower business; and 4 years in the Coast Guard. He grew up in Minnesota, came to California in '67 (WOW!) and lives in Oakland. He's been fortunate to attend several NEH seminars and institutes, mostly focussing on American Indians, and hopes to bring back even more material to put into his American Lit class.
