What have you learned in the 40 years since we were graduated that you wish you knew in high school?
Real math and real English are so important. Our children need to learn that the only theory in life that truly needs to be understood is Supply and Demand.

Of all your high school memories, which one stands out above the rest and why?
The freshman class trip to Seaside Heights, N.J. - June 16, 1972. First date with Barbara - the rest is history.

Give a brief synopsis of the last 40 years.

I married Barbara, graduated the Culinary Institute of America and had great years in the Healthcare Food Service Field. I spent 20 years as president and chairman of the board of GHA Federal Credit Union, while working in Greenwich Conn.

Barbara and I have two children, Erica (Paul) and Mark, and three grandchildren: Madelyn, Maximus, and Charlotte, plus numerous cats, fish, and a dog. I still love to cook; having 10 people for dinner is better than 18 holes of golf. I still love the beach - any beach. Religion and spirituality are important to me. I volunteer at the Immaculate Conception Church, and Families Anonymous.

Of all your high school memories, which one stands out above the rest and why?
I was not one of the better students at PVHS and wish I spent more time to try to get to know others.

Give a brief synopsis of the last 40 years.  
I am an avid wildlife rehabber and volunteer for a parrot rescue group. I went to college at the age of 37, earned a B.S. in Business Management with a major in finance, and graduated magna cum laude from Mt. St. Mary College in Newburgh, N.Y. It's the hardest thing I've ever done, since I completed my degree nights and weekends while holding down a very time-consuming and difficult job. I have been happily married for over 25 years with three dogs, three parrots, and I enjoy gardening and working with all animals. I volunteer for a local food pantry, and try to give back to the community (or its animals).

If you could go back to high school, is there anything you would do differently?
I would apply myself 100% to my studies and enjoy student life. It would have been so much easier than the route I took!

I worked for 30 years in the music business; got laid off three times. Any of you who have children who share music files, please cut their hands off. Thank you.

After my music career died, I went in search of gainful employment. I had been seriously considered for Apollo 29, but instead I now work in sales for a magazine company, and also work in HR at Target. I am the Classical Music Director for WFDU, the president of my church council, and a member of my church's mission to Bosnia-Herzegovina.

If you could go back to high school, is there anything you would do differently?
Regrets? I have a few. But then again, too few to mention.

I borrowed my parent's 1963 Rambler.

Who was your favorite singer/group?
Jim Croce.

Bad Bad Leroy Brown.

What brand of jeans did you wear?

Rita Endres.

Who were your best buds and where was your favorite hangout?
It changed as we went through school. I'd say Neil Hudes, Ken Klein, Tim Cady, Dave Fredlic, Wayne Olsen, Mike Wierer, and Ed Berger.

Where did you work?
I worked for myself doing lawn care and turned it into my own business. I have been doing it ever since. I did do some work at the high school with my brother after we graduated. We tore out all the lockers. Boy, what a job and for little money. I swore I'd never work for anyone but myself after that.

Where do you live now?
Westwood, N.J. in apartment building next to Randall and Randall Law Office.

What's your favorite quote?
"Computers are the wave of the future" or something similar, by Mr. Ziemba when we laughed at him about the importance of computers.

Who was your favorite high school teacher or class and why?
Tough one. Can this be multiple choice? I would say Goodyear because he tried to help all students, never held anything against you, and made his class fun even if you did not like physics. On the other hand, I would also say Mr. Leonard because I recall once he tried to guess our family name's origin even if we did not know it. It helped spark an interest in history in me and in time I became a genealogist and amateur historian. I've become like Mr. Leonard in being able to tell where many people come from in the U.S. if their family has lived here a long time.

What have you learned in the 40 years since we were graduated that you wish you knew in high school?
That we were there to learn and not goof off. The teachers also were there to teach and had spent a lot of effort to be there to do so. I know without a doubt that I could have done a whole lot better. It is one of my biggest regrets. Also, that most kids have the same experience upon entering high school as far as fitting in and the anxiety that goes with it. Those students who acted out the most (bullying, goofing off etc. ) had worse problems than the rest of us.

Of all your high school memories, which one stands out above the rest and why?
One? Having an excellent memory, I could go on for days. But the one memory which has proved most useful and which I pass along to this day is as follows:  One day in Algebra class with Mrs. Hiney, Meredith Bowler suddenly stood up and told us she had an important announcement to make. We all looked at her with surprise as to what it could be she had to say. She related that over the weekend she had learned how to cure hiccups and it was fool proof. She said that you had to take a breath, put your chin to your chest without exhaling and mimic swallowing something. And to this day, it has instantly worked each and every time. I thought I would pass that along and wonder if Meredith remembers it. At least I think it was Meredith :)

Give a brief synopsis of the last 40 years.
I graduated Bergen with AA in 1977 and started own Landscape business in 1978. I lived in Hillsdale to 2000 and Westwood since. I manage and play softball in 18 and 35-and-over Hillsdale leagues and 40- and-over hardball league. I am a genealogist and local historian having traced my lines back to the start of this country. I had many operations between 1984 and 1990 on feet and knees and need custom shoes to function but am AOK. That is why I never ran track :). My passion is doing my family's history and passing it along. I also like to travel but only in the winter, and have gone to various places but not nearly enough.

If there is anything you wish/want people to know about you that isn't asked, tell us here!
Back in school, I was kind of quiet and it was due in part to my bad feet which I never realized. When I was 38 and had my first pair of shoes made correctly,  I first understood what it was to feel normal. Now I am very outgoing and speak to anyone anytime. But now that I speak so much my friends tell me to cut back :) That is the main difference between now and then regarding myself.

I moved to Maine three years ago and got married. My girls are now teens about to graduate from high school. I love to bike, x-country ski, and take long walks on the beach and in the woods near the beach.

What was your favorite song?
In freshman year I remember Rod Stewart's "Maggie May", but anything by the Beatles or Simon and Garfunkel. Also "25 or 6 to 4" by Chicago, everything on the Stones' "Sticky Fingers" album. And I was pretty fond of Maynard Ferguson's recording of "La Fiesta."

What's your favorite quote?
"Out of wine comes truth,
Out of truth the vision clears,
And with vision soon appears
A grand design.
From the grand design
You can understand the world.
And when you understand the world,
You need a lot more wine."
--Stephen Sondheim

Who was your favorite high school teacher or class and why?
Arnold Petersen for his wisdom, Harold Ganz for his instilling a love of biology (and the amniote egg), and Richard Thielker, because he called me out for not reading an assigned book!

What have you learned in the 40 years since we were graduated that you wish you knew in high school?
That I wasn't as smart as I thought I was; that I could accomplish more than I thought I could; and that I had a lot of cool classmates that I wish I'd known better.

Of all your high school memories, which one stands out above the rest and why?
Being part of the Barbershop Quartet in our senior year production of "The Music Man" with John Murano, Ed Gorham and Pat Annabelle. We sounded great--especially in the bathroom! Oh yeah--and those damn gray shorts I had to wear in gym, signifying that I was a spaz!

Give a brief synopsis of the last 40 years.
After graduating RPI and Albany Med, I did a residency in internal medicine, served in the National Health Service Corps in Georgia and Texas, and then did a geriatric medicine fellowship in NYC. After marrying, we spent 13 years in Atlanta, where we raised two wonderful daughters. Since moving back to N.Y. in 2004, I’m divorced, working for Optum as a medical director after practicing in several hospitals and nursing homes.

Most importantly, I’m no spaz! I run, play tennis and occasionally ski. Most importantly, I still play the piano, probably more than I have in years. Life is good.

If you could go back to high school, is there anything you would do differently?
Other than refuse to wear those gray gym shorts? I'd probably have worked a lot more on my writing, not tried to learn the bassoon and spent a lot more time practicing the piano. And a lot more wine.

Chicago, Eagles, The Who, Loggins & Messina and the Vander Horn Singers

What have you learned in the 40 years since we were graduated that you wish you knew in high school?
The practice of law. If I had only known then what I know now about the law, damn, what I could have gotten away with!

Of all your high school memories, which one stands out above the rest and why?
Having never sung or performed on stage, trying out for Music Man in senior year and getting a part in the barbershop quartet.   I would have never dreamed in my prior three years that I would ever be getting up on stage, and singing, no less, in front of an audience.  I wound up having the time of my young life!

I went to school at Villanova University and was graduated with an accounting degree in 1979.

In 1994, my wife and I built our house at our present Ridgewood address where we live with our 16 year old daughter, Victoria. My wife is a high school Spanish teacher at Emerson High School. We love to travel, and I am an avid New York Giants tailgater. Stop by Section L5 and I'll make you a Manhattan!

If you could go back to high school, is there anything you would do differently?                           Grown a beard, smoked cigarettes and hung out by the brook.   Seriously, I would have gotten more involved with things like the musical.  I waited too long!

I should have paid more attention in geometry class.

Give a brief synopsis of the last 40 years.

After graduation from Montclair State, I started my teaching career at Cliffside Park High School. I married my husband Tom in December of 1980, and we moved to Texas in the summer of 1982. I began teaching at Klein High School (a northwestern suburb of Houston) and have been there ever since. Both Tom and I teach in the same district. We have three children: Mike (30), Christy (28) and Tim (22). I also have a grandson, Turner (2). We also have five dogs! I'm an active volunteer with a dog rescue organization (I do website work for them) and you can often see me at local dog events and shows. My husband's a volunteer firefighter, so the two of us stay pretty active. And even though I've lived more year in the Great State of Texas than I've lived anywhere else (and my children are Texas "natives"), I'm still asked every once in a while, "You're a Yankee, aren't you?"

  If you could go back to high school, is there anything   you would do differently?

I've realized that all of us are more alike than we are different, so chances are I would have been a lot more confident socially, at least in my own eyes.
