I was a speech and language therapist for over 24 years in Claiborne County schools (as well as employed by Knox County Schools, Knoxville, TN) My teaching experience included working with children ages 2 through age 19 for speech and language rehabilitation. My experience includes speech and language therapy one-on-one as well as in small groups.

I retired in 2003 as a speech therapist and completed over 100 hours training/student teaching at "The Tennessee Foreign Language Institute" downtown Nashville, TN in 2004. On completion, I volunteered as an ESL instructor with a student working on her high school diploma and American citizenship as well as helping her strengthen her social English skills. I also taught English to several Hispanic moms enrolled in a Title One government funded parenting class one night a week in 2004.

At the end of 2004, I worked at Lincoln Memorial University with groups of Japanese high school students who were enrolled in a high school English program for three semesters 2004-2006. I was a contractual/salaried teacher of rotating ESL classes including the teaching of reading/listening/conversation to groups of 12-15 Japanese students for 5 days per week for 7 weeks. I taught an average of 65 students per day for one hour sessions. My final two semesters at LMU included the organization of a church banquet for a high school student at the end of their stay before returning to Japan. I also orchestrated social interactions between Japanese students and local high school students during my church's planned youth activities one night a week. My family and I were actively involved in keeping small groups of Japanese students for "Home Stay" during their 7-10 week semesters for over 10 years. These home-stays were designed to strengthen conversational English while socially interacting with English speaking families.
