Lakeside English Teacher
Tom Doelger was raised in New York City, much to his delight at the time, though times change. As a teenager, he set his mind on certain objectives: not to go west past the Hudson River, not to marry before the age of 35, and certainly not ever to teach, a profession he thought was reserved for only the most desperate individuals.
By the age of 21 Tom was married; by the age of 22 he and his wife were living in Colorado, and by the age of 27, he was teaching. At 37, he began teaching at Lakeside School, 33 years ago. Tom Doelger continues to make plans, though tentatively.
