  • I am trying to find out if he went to Coronado intermediate school in West Covina Calif. How can one find out?

    He is amazing. Did he ever live in West Covina attending Coronado? If this is the same guy he wrote many stories as an eigth grade student. I was a classmate. The English teacher would have him read his stories to the class. Jr. High kids would be fascinated with his stories and I remember being amazed at his creativity. His imagination was so well developed. He could describe fictional events he created as though they really happened. He completly captivated the students. I am wondering how to contact him as he must certainly be the same Peter Fischer that attended Coronado. Does anyone have any info. aboour him?moreless
