I am CJ from Fairfield and have been a follower of AoM for about 6 months and finally decided to join the community. Originally from Malden, MA, I am an avid Boston sports fan and get up to the area as often as I can. I spent many years teaching History until a recent jump into school administration at the high school level. I have a wife and three beautiful daughters...but there's ALWAYS room for AoM!
