I am married and currently live in Wallingford, Connecticut. I am a graduate of Southern Connecticut State University. I graduated in 1976 with a Bachelors degree in secondary education, majoring in history and social sciences, with a minor in English. I received my Masters degree in history and social studies, also from Southern Connecticut State University, in 1982. "Teaching for What?" is my only published book.
I retired from teaching in 2011 after a thirty-five year career in Connecticut public, vocational and private schools. I spent eight years as the chairman of the History Department at a local public high school and served four years as President of its teachers union. I was named Teacher of the Year in 1980 and was nominated for that award numerous times afterwards. I have also also taught online college courses for the University of Phoenix. In recent years, I supervised student teachers and interns for the University of New Haven.
My oldest son, Jim Fusco, is a musicians who has produced several albums of original work that are on sale at his website, "", while my youngest son, Mike Fusco, is a also a musician in Los Angeles.
