My name is Bill Wolfe. I’m a happily married husband (28 years) and father (two sons, 26 and 21) who spent 19 years teaching high school English, Journalism, and AVID in the southern San Joaquin Valley of California. In mid-2016, I took advantage of an early retirement incentive and established a freelance editing business, Argus Editorial Services. https://arguseditorial.com
I grew up in the suburbs of Los Angeles, with brief periods in Honolulu and San Francisco. I attended UCLA and California State University, Northridge, earning a BA in English, magna cum laude. After working for a few years as a journalist, I attended Loyola Law School in Los Angeles, graduating in 1990. I practiced law until late 1996, when I made a career change to teaching. It was the work I was destined to do. I taught at my last school from 1999-2016. In 2005, I was named District Teacher of the Year. My other interests include photography, nearly everything having to do with Australia (especially music and Australian Rules Football, aka “footy”), politics, social activism, travel, swimming, and spending as much time as I can at the coast.
