After finishing up engineering school I worked for five years in the mining industry and then five years in the medical device industry. Now, I do the book keeping for my husband's engineering company and I home school our two boys. I occasionally substitute for teachers at the private school my boys attend (Family Academy of Christian Education - this is a school that meets once a week to provide home school kids a chance to take courses in a classroom setting). While math and science are my forte, by teaching my boys, I have learned to appreciate, and love, language, writing, reading, and history too. By starting "at square one" with my own kids, I can empathize with the fact that kids need to be taught the basics with love and understanding.
