David to share his experience as both a student and teacher
On Wednesday, November 14th at 7:00 p.m., Milton resident David Smith brings his book: Be A Teacher: A Memoir in Ten Ideas (Outskirts Press, c2017) to the Library. David began teaching 50 years ago and has worked in five different schools ranging from the shoestring variety to the well-established. He spent 34 years at Milton Academy, 11 of them as Chair of the English Department.
