Although I have worked in technical education at the community college level for 20 years, I began as a Reading teacher for elementary level students. From there, I entered the community college system as a Reading/ English/ instructor and went on to teach basic skills for industry on-site and later became department head of Developmental Studies at a technical college in SC. I then went into administration as Dean of Industrial & Engineering Technologies and retired as Assoc. VP of Educational Programs & Services in NC.
I received my initial education at Illinois State University, a teaching college in Normal, Illinois. In 1976, I developed and implemented an individualized reading program for grades 1 - 12 and tutored reading at the community college level on the side.
...although my address is Marshville, I live only 3 miles from New Salem Elementary School, New Salem...
