Teacher at CPHS from 1973-1993

May 24, 2013 by Howard Wouters (Register to contact)

In June, 2013 I will complete 45 years of teaching in the greater Tacoma area. It all started at Laughbon High School in Dupont (1968-1973),continued at Clover Park High School (1973-1993, and I will be completing my teaching career at Charles Wright Academy(1993-2013). Although I am aware of the paths of some of the students I have taught, as my way of celebrating my retirement I would love to hear via e-mail or card from as many of my former students as possible. I'm sure I have forgotten some students that were very important to me at the time, so I would like them to re-introduce themselves and catch me up to their current lives
