About the Author
Dan Witmer taught English at Hannibal Central Central School, NY for thirty-three years. In that time, he also coached three sports, directed the senior play, served on numerous committees, and survived a censorship battle in his first year of teaching - oh yes, and he also supervised the placement of teachers and practicum students, coached lacrosse for twenty-eight years, and raised a family. Occasionally, the work piled up. But he kept his promise to his students: "I'm gonna write that book some day!"
