For local man Dean Vogel, the president of the California Teachers Association, terming out of his presidency on June 25, leading to his eventual retirement, means being home just a little bit more.
His job the past four years, as the leader of the 325,000-member organization, has taken him all over California, to Washington, D.C., and on numerous trips all over the world.
When reached by the Daily Republic on Wednesday afternoon at a Southern California hotel room, Vogel said, “On a really good month when everything goes my way, I’m home five or six days.”
“I’ve had a good time but I’m done,” said the 67-year-old married grandfather of eight, laughing.
