When asked to pose for a photo at his 72nd birthday in 1951, Einstein did!

Who's Hank (aka., Henry Deemer)??


After hanging out with teenagers at Pequea Valley High School for 35 years, I often felt like Einstein in his famous photo of 1951.  During my career I taught Physics, Computer Science, Astronomy, and Meteorology, and for nearly a decade I served as the K-12 Computer Coordinator for the school district.  I retired in 2005. 

Now I spend my time chasing down dead relatives, getting paid to tell people where to go(!) as a part-time travel consultant in a tourist information center in PA Dutch Country, and enjoying a life of liesure in a "resort" (actually a retirement community) where I get to take the dog for long walks in the woods and watch other people mow my lawn and shovel my snow.
