This isn't your typical Letter to the Editor; it's more of a "Look what one of our Lodi kids is up to!"
Our son, Duane Arthur Simpfenderfer Jr., who graduated from Lodi High School in 2004 and Point Loma Nazarene University in San Diego in 2008, is teaching English as a second language in South Korea. He's keeping a blog that he updates every few days about his teaching experience, life in South Korea, why he misses the USA, etc.
Whether you know him or not, I thought some of you might find them interesting. Maybe you know Duane from high school, maybe you taught him at Mokelumne River School or Lodi High School, or maybe you're one of those teachers who recently retired and now you won't be teaching to an over-crowded classroom for less pay, so you have time to read this young man's blog.
You teachers won't be happy with the lack of punctuation or spelling, but you'll appreciate his ability to write a story and keep the reader interested. The site is duaneasimp.wordpress.com.
