Yes! Attending Reunion
Do you still see/talk to/hang out with any classmates? Who?

David Javitch and Alex Katz

My best regards to all my classmates at the 50th reunion. Family matters prevent me from attending this reunion.


Retirement in 2006 has afforded me the opportunity to increase my exercise routines from tennis to TRX, Kettlebell, Tabata and HIIT.

My older son, Elliott, living in LA, is a seasoned coach in health, fitness and nutrition planning. Through his guidance, I have added proper nutrition/eating (no wheat products) to get me in great shape. I am at my early college weight and waist size. Check out his web site and feel free to ask him any questions to assist you -

"You gain muscle in the gym.
You lose weight in the kitchen."

My younger son, Eric, also in LA, is focusing on improv comedy and music. The past 3 years has been mostly his music. He has completed two cd's where he plays all the instruments and sings all the vocals. Two songs (with video) from his second cd are at:

School Story:

Four-year tennis scholarship to Kent State. BBA, 1969, BS in Educ (Math), 1970. MBA from Univ. of Miami in 1974.

In May, 2006, I completed 36 years of teaching high school mathematics and gifted courses in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools. I spent my last nine years teaching AP Statistics, Gifted Pre-Calculus, Gifted Algebra 2 and Gifted Geometry.

For the school year 1998-99, I was selected as Miami-Dade County’s Mathematics Teacher of the Year for all high schools.

I started teaching AP Statistics since its inception in the 1996-97 school year. In 2001 and 2002, the College Board selected me to be a Reader for the AP Statistics Exam.

Since my retirement, I have been tutoring students from many local high schools.

David Javitch has viral pneumonia and the flu. He is under a quarantine that visitors must wear masks, like Clayton Moore. He called me on 4/6/17 when he entered Brigham and Women's Hospital. He has since been transferred to NewBridge on the Charles Rehab Center. His walking has been compromised, but hopefully the rehab will get him back on his feet. He still wants to attend the 70th Birthday Bash. He is able to get calls directly to his room #40: 781-234-7440. If he found a charger for his cell, his cell # is 617-835-7727. You can email him at
