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 first published book, but I have finished a second one, "Masonry 101," which deals with Freemasonry in Connecticut.
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 it's 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.
Currently, I am Secretary of Center Lodge Number 97, AF&AM, in Meriden, CT. My oldest son, Jim Fusco, is a musicians who has produced several albums of original work that are on sale at his website, "jimfusco.com", while my youngest son, Mike Fusco, is a musician and actor currently breaking into the business out in Los Angeles.
