Hi Guys and Gals............40 years........yikes!  After graduating from WGHS, I attended San Jose State where I received a Social Science degree and a secondary teaching credential.  I'm entering my 34th of teaching (33 years of high school and one year of middle school).  I spent 8 years at Independence High in San Jose and am entering my 25th year teaching and coaching at Oak Grove High also in San Jose.  I teach Advanced Placement Government and Politics, regular Government/Economics and PE.  I also organize and emcee the school rallies.  I'm entering my 36th year of coaching high school football (Piedmont Hills, Willow Glen, Independence and Oak Grove).  I'm planning on retiring in two more years.

I am married to a high school physics teacher .   We have two wonderful kids.  Our son is a sophomore at San Jose State and our daughter is a sophomore at Los Gatos High.  We live in the Santa Cruz mountains off of Soquel-San Jose Road.  We moved up to the mountains in 1985, lost our house in the Loma Prieta Earthquake of 1989, rebuilt, and have been there ever since.

I was in a 50's/60's rock and roll band called "Big Bop and the Choppers" for 26 years.  We broke up in 2000.  However, we played a reunion gig this last June and it looks like we may play again in the future.  I was also one of the founding members of "Sha-Boom" back in 1981, but being in two bands got to be too much and I left the group in 1984.

I'm really looking forward to the reunion.  The committee meetings have been a blast and I know the reunion will be more of the same...................  "Be there or square!"

Hello Everyone, I have read what many of you wrote and I look forward to catching up with you at the reunion. Not sure I have accomplished as much or am as funny but here goes.... I still live in the Willow Glen area and am amazed at how our quaint sleepy town has turned into a giant noisey crowded parking lot that keeps changing every day. Remember when we could race down Hamilton Ave.? After teaching at Saratoga High School for 10 years, I tried my hand at teaching my own three children, but it is never as easy with your own! I am still waiting to travel the world and be an empty nester but I am still trying to find my way out of fixing all that continues to be fixed and clean out what I have shoved into drawers the last 25 years! It has been a whirlwind. Our daughter is 25 and is off the payroll and living in Phoenix working in a Bio Tech. company. David is 24 and is finishing up at Cal Poly and interning in London at the Kew Gardens in Environmental Horitculture. (I am leaving to visit him on Sunday.) Our youngest is 22 and is an Agro Ecology major at Prescott College. I continue to exercise, swim, play cards, volunteer and have a purse business. I love Zumba! See you all at the end of the month. Cheers! Susie

Hi Everyone,
 I am so sorry I will not be able to attend this year and will miss seeing you and catching up. It sounds like a wonderful weekend is planned and thanks to the committee for all their hard work. 
I am still living in the Willow Glen area. Come by and say hello!
Wishing you all lots of fun and good health!
Our daughter Carla works for Sales Force in SF. Our son David has a vertical green wall business called Habitat Horticulture and has done many beautiful installations including the SF MOMA in SF. And our Son Andrew is keeping busy.
We are enjoying growing old together and trying to stay in shape as best we can. I started playing pickleball and if anyone would like to play, please email me. Susie

Since I graduated WGH, I spent a few years at San Jose City College, and then Hayward State College.  I was cosidered an "outside agitator" at San Jose State.

What can I say?, it was the 60s' . If your in the dark REMEMBER PEOPLES PARK ! ! 

I majored in Journalism ,minored in rock throwing. Married in 1974 divorced in 1990 ,1 beautiful daughter who loves her Dad .

We both cared for my aging beloved mother who passed in February this year at 99.

I Worked at F.M.C for 11years (F.M.C stands for Future Mental Case).

 I was self-employed for a number of years in various ventures some legal,some illegal and payed the price for the latter. Those who have not a clue one must follow the code.

1. Everything is on a need to know basis.
2. Grown men don't tell .
3. Always, always RESPECT a Made Guy.

For the past 16 years, I have been working in the field of Substance Abuse starting at Dominican Hospital Adrian Center, Bridge House in Kailua-Kona Hawaii,and back to Santa Cruz at Janus Of Santa Cruz.

The pay is not the greatest,but it has its rewards. I guess I will always be the ALTRUSTIC BENEVOLENT BEING  from a planet that lies beyond all human comprenhension of the CELESTIAL.

Your Kindred Spirit

After WGHS I graduated from SJSU and then went to art school for a while.  I’ve traveled a lot and lived for 12 years in London, Johannesburg, Singapore, Hong Kong (my favorite), and Frankfurt.  I worked in IT before it was called IT and then was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years while doing various volunteer jobs including working at a foster care agency, a Hong Kong adoption center, a German prison, the American Red Cross in Germany, and locally as a web designer.  I was married for 24 years and have two wonderful sons who are in college.  I now live in the East Bay in Lafayette and work in San Francisco and Pleasanton in the marketing department of a large insurance company.

Hi Everyone!  I live in Chico, Ca. and have been here for 32 years. 
I retired 8 years ago from working in the grocery business for 36 years. Altho I've been busier than ever taking care of a couple of moms, but I love it.
I've been married for 30 years. No children except for a "very" spoiled cat.
I have to thank everyone that attended the mixer and the 40th reunion BBQ at the Hecker Pass Winery for making it such an awesome reunion. We did have the best reunion ever. 
About 80 people at the mixer and about 120 at the BBQ. Everyone stayed late into the evening and danced the night away to the "Ram Jam Band". 
Thanks to all the committe members and the band put together by Paul Trapani and Corky Black. 
Not  to mention appetizers  by John Ripley and dessert by Jeff Ross. Of course it wouldn't have happened without the direction of Ronita Seward!
Oh,  we had so much fun...Until our next reunion......Thanks everyone!

Hello Fellow Classmates!
Wow...so many of you wrote such wonderful things about your lives. I've stayed in the Bay Area and worked in retail and HR most of my career. I got married...got divorced...almost got married again...but thought better of it! I don't have any children of my own but I'm the "fun aunt" in my family...which includes 10 brothers and sisters and more nieces, nephews, great nieces and nephews than I can count! I recently traveled to Italy, France and Hawaii...all in the same year. Now I'm busy working and paying off my American Express bill! I hope everyone has a fun time at the Reunion.  I'll be out of town attending my brother's birthday party. His name is Jon Taylor and he graduated from Willow Glen a year before us.  PS...I'm the red head in the "now" picture from Italy.
Cheers!
Diane
