About Elaine

When my children were in school they all hated history, BORING they said. I could not understand why since as a student I thought it was like reading a good book. I tried all types of methods to inspire them. Drawing, flash cards, my own story telling, even cooking. History does not have to be boring if it is made fun. My 28 year old son now has two Master's Degrees in History from the University of Miami and he is a museum docent in Atlanta where he lectures to youngsters and adults of all ages. He is now an expert in Civil War History. I guess I made a difference! " We are not makers of history. We are made by history. - Martin Luther King . "

I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and in my free time, I am involved with the Innocence Project. I am a paralegal with great understanding of the Bill of Rights and the Constitution. I grew up in Salem, Plymouth and Boston, Massachusetts. I spent many years learning about our history and founding fathers. I now make regular trips to Atlanta each year as I am now focused on the Civil War. I love history!

I have played the guitar of 40 years and taught guitar since I was 14 years old. I was taught guitar by the Mel Bay Method which is still alive and well today. In high school and college I carried my guitar with me everywhere. For many years, I played for my church music group. It is a beautiful instrument that is part of my soul.

Guitar

I have played the guitar for 40 years. I was taught with the Mel Bay Guitar Method and have had formal music training. I read and write music. I taught guitar at the Lynn Conservatory of Music in Salem, Massachusetts from the age 14 to 25, until I got married and did not have enough time. The conservatory was closed when the owner, Charlene Wells died. I can read and write music. I played guitar the Saturday Evening (7:00 pm folk mass) at St. Thomas the Apostle in Peabody, MA parish for 7 years. Many years later, I still play for my own enjoyment. I love the guitar!

Political Science

I have a BS Degree in Political Science from Salem State College. I was the President of the Political Science Academy at Salem State in my senior year. Professionally, I have been a Research Paralegal for the last 11 years.
