I transitioned out of teaching to work as a communications director, now for 20 years (11 of those years in private schools) where I utilize my expert skills in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and other software packages to carry out my daily responsibilities.

I started out my career as a full-time middle school teacher with most of my teaching responsibilities in English and Algebra 1 in private schools. I transitioned out of teaching to work as a communications director, now for 20 years (11 of those years in private schools) where I utilize my expert skills in Adobe InDesign, Photoshop, Illustrator, Dreamweaver and other software packages to carry out my daily responsibilities. I taught Algebra I and Algebra I Honors for several years at prestigious independent schools in Santa Monica, California and an all-girls school in Palo Alto, California. I've worked with students at all ability levels in grades 6-9.

My undergraduate degree is in Secondary Education with a concentration in English. For several years I was credentialed in the state of Maine to teach 7-12 English and Language Arts. My work experience as a communications director has required me to use my excellent writing and copy editing skills and to serve as an editorial expert for the organizations I worked for.

Desktop publishing and using InDesign and Photoshop (and other Adobe software) has been a daily part of my job for the past 20 years. I design and publish every possible print and electronic publication out there including newsletters, annual alumni magazines, brochures, banners, flyers, e-newsletters, websites, rack cards, business cards, letterhead and envelopes, etc.

I'm ready and available whenever you are! Just be be willing to having an open mind and to work hard! I have a lot of skills and knowledge and would love to share it with you, young people and adults!

I have been using InDesign for 20 years as the primary software for responsibilities as a communications director, so I know it well. I've had several opportunities throughout my career to teach others how to use it as well. While serving as a yearbook advisor, I taught my yearbook staff how to use the software to lay out pages and for seniors to create their own individual pages. I just recently trained a coworker who was relying on Publisher to create a 40 page magazine. Because I'm strictly an InDesign user, I was unable to help her with some of the issues she was having. Through approximately 40 hours of tutoring, I got her up to speed and she's now able to do all of her work in InDesign with minimal support from me.

Desktop Publishing

Desktop publishing has been part of my job responsibilities as a communications director for the past 20 years. I have hands-on experience producing any type of electronic or print communication including magazines, brochures, rack cards, newsletters, letterhead, business cards, e-newsletters, etc using InDesign and Photoshop as my primary tools. I started working as a communications director in a private school in 1996 at a time when most communications were outsourced to graphic design firms. By bringing the work in house, it created a position that has now become a crucial role in the marketing and fundraising needs of any non-profit organization.
