Ed is married with two sons and the great thing is that education is the family business. Ed's wife has been a SDC classroom aide for over 20 years and both of his sons are Special Education Teachers. Ed has 2 grandchildren, one girl and one boy.
For Ed, education has been his way of giving back to those people, educators, who had the greatest impact on his own life. Outside of education Ed spends his time with his wife, and companion for over 40 years, Theresa, in their Tehachapi home.
