photo_092507_0011My name is Neal Locke, and I’ve been blogging intermittently since around 1995, although we didn’t have a name for it back then.  This particular blog dates back to the early 2000s and my years as a high school English teacher, hence its title.

Currently, I am in my fourth and final year as a student at Princeton Theological Seminary, where I’m pursuing an M.Div degree, an M.A. in Christian Education, as well as coursework in medieval language and literature at Princeton University.

I am married to my high-school sweetheart, Amy, and we have three beautiful, precocious children: Grady (7), Abby (4), and Jonah (newborn).  Upon graduation this May, I plan to seek employment as an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A).  In my spare time (who has spare time with three children?) I enjoy brewing beer, acting in community theater, translating Old English manuscripts, playing with the latest technological gadgets, and following my two favorite  teams: the Denver Broncos and the Baltimore Orioles.

These are some other places you’re likely to find me online:
