Hi. My name is Edwin Lamoli-Torres and I am a resident of Cabo Rojo, Puerto Rico.
I am a retired professor from the University of Puerto Rico at Mayaguez, where I retired from in 1992 after working there for twenty-three years.
During my teaching career I taught English as a Second Language to first and second year students. While teaching at the before mentioned university, I also taught part time at Inter American University in San German, Puerto Rico and also at Catholic University in Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
Prior to my teaching career at the university level, I received my Master's Degree in ESL from Teacher's College, Columbia University in 1969 in New York City. Before this, I received my B.A. in ESL from Inter American University in San German, Puerto Rico in 1964. For four years prior to getting my B.A., I was a member of the United States Air Force, during which time I served in the USA, France, Germany and Spain.
I have now been retired for the past eleven years and just recently I have been informed that the youngest of my children (who is thirty-one years old and who is physically and mentally handicapped) has Morphea Scleroderma. The little that I have been able to learn about this illness has been through my son's doctor and the information I have gotten through this website; therefore, I wish to volunteer to help this organization in any way I can, and having done much translating during my teaching career, I have requested to become a member of this prestigious group of volunteers.
I truly hope and wish that I will be able to be of help by getting the necessary information to those, like me, who really need it.
