I'm a retired New York State parole officer who has spent the last nine years working as a therapist, but I began my career as an elementary school teacher and would like to work helping students excel in their subjects and school careers. I had difficulty myself all through high school but, when I later went to college, I graduated summa cum laude with a perfect 4.0 average. Doing well in school is not so much a matter of memorizing and remembering date as it is having a positive attitude about yourself and what you can accomplish. Once this is achieved, then learning becomes an easy and enjoyable task.
