OS CRESSON (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Os is a retired special education teacher living in Lumberton Leas, NJ. He was born in 1941, has a PhD in behavioral psychology, and lived for 23 years in Monteverde, Costa Rica (returning to the U.S. in 1997). As a child he lived in Afghanistan and Iran, 1949 to 1953. It wasn’t a long time but the ripples never stopped going through his life.
Currently Os is working on six projects to do with Afghanistan: a book, a talk and exhibit, a teachers' resource guide, relationships between schools here and there, a literacy project, and an effort to learn Persian. His other interests include supporting students in Costa Rica, Quaker humanism, behavior analysis and religion, the analysis of the behavior of animals in the wild, and running.
