My name is John VanPelt. I spent five years working in the newspaper industry as a reporter, photographer, darkroom manager and editor. Since 2002, I have been a teacher of journalism and English.
This page is just one more way for me to shout from the mountaintops about my love of knowledge and learning. I will express my opinions on current events topics from around the world.
Feel free to express yourselves as well or to pass along suggestions for topics. The more we can exchange ideas, the more we can learn. I tend to be very strong in my opinions, but that does not mean to say I cannot be swayed by a sound argument.
Thanks for checking out my page. I hope you enjoy your time here.
