I was an "at home mom" for 17 years and a teacher for 11. I really love working with children and young people. I love to teach them and hear their questions and giggles. I also enjoy many types of activities (swimming, biking, hiking, going to museums, libraries, the movies, kids events, I have a strong minor in the preforming arts and have done music and theater, etc.), cooking nutritious meals, creative house work and home updates (I am very good at laundry, floors, cleaning etc- I'm only a little anal). I am certified in ESE, ESOL, Secondary English and Social Studies and have competencies towards my Reading Endorsement, I can work with any age. Also, I am very good at advocating for kids. Most parents would want me for their child's teacher. I was certified for adult life guarding three times by the Red Cross.
