Slide-Share has asked me the question: "what am I an expert in or, what am I an expert at? To answer that question I have placed in this document, and at this site, a copy of my resume of some 23 pages. I do not regard myself as an expert in anything. I am a generalist, a retired teacher and lecturer with 32 years in the classroom, and another 18 as a student. This half century in schools and colleges has seen me studying and reading, teaching and tutoring, writing and publishing on a very wide range of subjects and disciplines, topics and fields.
In addition to my professional resume found in this document, my Baha’i resume is also found here, in Appendix C, as is a list of subjects I taught while lecturing, tutoring and teaching in post-secondary schools, colleges and universities(see Appendix B) and a basic bio-data sheet(see Appendix B). Once used to apply for jobs from the early sixties to the early years of the new millennium, this evolving document, altered more times over the last 50+ years than I care to try counting, is now an archive that I update occasionally for internet use in these first years of my retirement, my life on a pension, and my late adulthood, 2009-2014. I use it now in one of a multitude of forms on the internet.
My professional resume and the statement of my Baha’i experience has become, in the last decade or so, an integrated document for Baha’is, and those individuals in other interest groups, around the world. Each Baha’i utilizes their resume, their curriculum vitae(CV), their lifeline, lifestory, personal-life narrative in their own unique ways. Their document, outlining their qualifications and experience, has an immense teaching value in its own right especially as this Faith long ago shed its preoccupation with conversion, established its credentials far beyond anything that humanity understands by the word “religion” and focuses its public message in paradigms outside the exclusivist religious categories, the “us and them” intrusions, that it has had in the past.
