Robert Wilkner's Background
I look forward to an enjoyable history book club at UUCFL. I am presently “employed”as a pro bono tutor at the cafe of a local book store. Had the opportunity of teaching Advanced Placement United States History at a local high school and Twentieth Century History at Broward College.
I’ve often succeeded in making history interesting for both high school and college students. I majored in history at Florida State University (BA) and Florida Atlantic University (MA). You may know my son Larry
who is also a member of the congregation.
