History

Bible Studies,

Bible Studies

I have been a church attending Christian since 1985 and avid student of the Bible from that time. Before the advent of computers, I used to write out every verse on a subject from my Strong's concordance. I wrote every verse on angels twice. I authored one bible based book and am working on a second.
Religion,

Religion

I became a Christian in 1985 and have studied the bible, Christianity and other religions fervently since that time. I graduated from Point Loma Nazarene University, a Christian University, with a degree in literature. Much of the literature, drama and philosophy studied there had religious themes. I am a published author of a bible based book and am currently writing other religious themed projects.
World History,

World History

World history is a huge subject and therefore I still consider myself as much of a learner as a teacher. The most important approach to this subject is developing strong study habits that cultivate interest and build from there.

Sports/Recreation

Baseball,

Baseball

I was on my first little league team in fifth (?) grade and have been an avid player of baseball and softball unto this day. I play second base and pitcher best. My kids all have gloves, bats and lots of balls and we play regularly. They look forward to the church picnic where they can play with the adults.
Chess,

Chess

I have been playing chess since at least fourth grade and have the same chess pieces that I received as a gift at that time. At one time I had a friend visiting me in college so I could teach him how to play. I did homework while we played for months. One day he beat me and he never returned to play another game.
Softball

Softball

I have been playing baseball and softball since early grade school. The beauty of softball is that it is "softer" and therefore easier to play for a broader group of people. Besides the differences in balls, the biggest split in the parallel sports is the pitching style. Softball uses underhand pitching for both fast and slow pitch renditions of the game as opposed to baseball which pitches overhand.

Test Preparation

CBEST,

CBEST

I just took the CBEST a month ago and passed by a wide margin. I also took the sample test online before the test and passed with a 91 percent accumulative score. I was just awarded a 30 day permit and am collecting letters from my university staff to apply for substitute teaching positions.

outreaching and helpful

He is easy to talk to about almost anything. He is obviously very educated and well exposed to people of various backgrounds and cultures. Good job WyzAnt for hiring him!

Joseph was engaging and patient.

It's exciting to regain a working understanding of the game of chess, since I haven't played in over 40 years!
