I am a semi-retired professional who has used gifts with which I've been blessed throughout my life. I taught piano from the time I was a sophomore in high school through college and into several years of being a military wife.
I spent 28 years working for two reputable law firms as both a paralegal and administrator. The most pleasurable part of that time for me was spent proofreading and copyediting such things as employee handbooks, franchise documents, and corporate matters for clients. Additionally, I reviewed court filings and letters for the attorneys throughout that period of time.
Within the past few years, I have mentored two Asian students at the University of Texas, assisting them with their English language difficulties both on paper and orally. Significant time was spent last year working on a Dutch project requiring grammar and proof-reading grading on my part for both graduate students and professors.
All that being said, my affection for children of all ages and appreciation of their innate thirst for knowledge is paramount in my desire to serve!
