Greetings,

I taught junior high social students for 18 years then worked as a tutor, Director of Education and then Center Director for a chain of tutorial centers. I also worked with at risk incoming freshmen with low assessment test results in math and reading who were enrolled at a private performing and visual arts college in Chicago.

Most recently I retired as a facilities manager with a community college and now work part time in a local testing center for adults seeking professional certifications.

I interact with all stakeholders in a positive, upbeat, professional manner and relate well to students from many diverse backgrounds.
