entered the National Teacher Training School and obtained a high school teaching credential.
In 2007, he earned a Fulbright
exchange position for a year at Bullard High. Adam(a) is currently working on his doctoral project on “Gender Issues” and
looks forward to meeting scholars who can help in that field.
Terry was born and raised in the Fresno area attending Bullard High School, CSU Fresno for his BA and MA, and the
University of LaVerne for his doctorate in educational leadership.
After receiving his BA, he served as a Peace Corps
Volunteer in Senegal.
In 1965, he returned to finish his teaching credential and begin his 35-year tenure at Clovis Unified as
teacher, learning director and elementary school principal.
He retired in 2000 and presently teaches 11 units per year at CSU
Fresno and serves as an arts education consultant to the Fresno Art Museum’s ArtSmart program.
