To Whom It May Concern:

I have a total of 23 years experience in the educational field. They range from substitute teacher, an assistant teacher, a classroom teacher, juvenile detention center teacher/tutor, and homebound school district tutor. I have also tutored for military students on the Air Force Base in Columbus, MS. I had the opportunity of serving as the Crossroads Teacher with the University for Women, instructing incarcerated students/adults to finally serving in the positions as an Administrator (Asst. Principal and Director of Special Education). I'm a former owner of a Day Care Center and an after school care. I have had the opportunity of teaching regular education PRE-K, 2nd – 8th grades, and most of the 13 categories in special education 7th-12th grades. I have a total of five or more years’ experience in the administration field. In addition to my educational experience, I am an Officer for Candidate School (OCS) with the Mississippi State Guard (E-6); I have strong communication and training skills. Therefore, having general education and special education endorsements makes me an excellent candidate for a Tutor.

As usual, it is an honor allowing me to share my experience with you. Thank you for reviewing my response. I look forward to hearing from you at the earliest.
