Dr. Butterfield began his career teaching music. He has always had an affinity for the many rich and diverse cultures of our world. One concert in fact when he was a school music director featured 7 languages from 5 continents. His career in education has been enriched by advocacy for persons who suffer from inequity, whether due to intellectual challenge, situational crises or discrimination due to race, gender orientation, religion or creed. Dr. Butterfield currently serves as the Director of Schools for the School District of Lancaster, and lives in the city with his lovely wife Anne.
