About Robert E. McCormack & Family
I am a single, retired school teacher now living in Palm Springs, CA. I grew up in Logan County, WV, did most of my teaching career in Montgomery County, Md and the rest in Palm Springs, CA. Life is great! I see it as an adventure full of lessons and detours but a journey to be relished and experienced. I don’t endorse any organized religious organization but take the good from many of them. A spiritual connection to our universe and the belief in the good in everyone is my motto. Recently I ran across this: “There is neither good nor evil; thinking makes it so.” (Shakespeare) This rang a bell with me. My past exploration in religion has resulted in seeing a much broader perspective and to enjoy the present –all that we really have. The glass is always half full.
In my retirement I meditate regularly, now take classes for fun (don’t need any more credits or degrees), practice the piano (making up for squandered childhood opportunity), visit the gym 3-4 times per week, attend concerts and theater as well as do home improvement projects.

I am blessed with a wonderful home in Palm Springs, California
I have two wonderful adult children who lived with me through their teen years -I could tell you many stories about that. It was a learning curve for all of us and they are loving, dependable adults.
My Daughter, Michelle (Soon to be Dr. Michelle Schall)
Michelle was a young widow with 6 children who has now combined her
life with Jeff. The new family now has 7 children and live in Virginia. At the left is the happy couple and me. At the right are my 6 grand kids with me. Both pictures were taken on the occasion of Michelle and Jeff’s wedding at their new home in Virginia.
