Looking Back, Moving On: Memoir as Prologue (Second Edition)by Janice Rubin
After spending her first twenty-two years as a student, earning a Bachelor´s degree in chemistry from Hunter College and a Master´s in psychology from Syracuse University, Janice Rubin married and dropped out of the doctoral program in clinical psychology shortly thereafter.She and husband Donald, a mathematician who entered the field of computers at its inception, began a ten-year odyssey which led from Syracuse, NY, to Washington, DC, to California, back to New York and, finally, to New Jersey, where they have since lived in a small town in the foothills of the Ramapo Mountains.
Two daughters were born, Rena in Washington and Ann in California.Rubin remained a stay-at-home mother until her children were in their teens, when she took a job as a news reporter for a chain of Bergen County newspapers.During her twenty-one years´ reporting and writing op-ed columns, she earned awards for investigative reporting, feature writing, enterprise reporting, among others.
She thought her life as a retiree had begun after she left journalism, but within three years she began to teach.In writing her memoirs as a gift to her children, she became aware of how great the emotional benefit of reviewing her life had been for her.She developed the syllabus she subsequently used to encourage her students to examine their lives as a first step in finding out who they are and where they want to go from here.Now in the fourteenth year of a career she had not anticipated when she began her autobiography, she has no plans to retire.
In 2001, Rubin and three of her longtime students wrote Four Lives: Despite the Odds, the memoirs of four women who made something of their lives despite inauspicious beginnings
