About Mary

I became a teacher when I was in my 30s. I went back to school to obtain my certification in secondary education/English. I took all the required tests and passed and soon thereafter I landed my first job, a long-term substitute position at a high school. After that job, I took another long-term substitute position which eventually turned into a contract job. I taught high school English (many courses) and Humanities for 20 years to grades 9-12.

Courses taught include American Literature, Short Story, Journalism, Shakespeare, SAT Preparation, 9th and 10th grade English, Introduction to Humanities and
Research Paper Writing.

I am retired from teaching but continue to work at two part-time jobs, both of which incorporate my writing, editing and proofreading skills.
