About Virginia

I love to read and share my experiences with those willing to learn. I am a history and piano teacher. My experiences range from teaching one on one with a single student to classes at schools. I have also taught adult workshops. I have been involved with many age levels. I worked very hard to set up a child care at a church. I also have been a child care director.

All of my experiences lend to a variety of skills and way to teach and share with others. I love hands on environmental science projects. I also share these with girl scouts and other elementary classes. I have been homeschool my elementary age son and we love exploring new things.

Our backyard and area contains many places in which to conduct experiments in science. I love also teaching piano. It is a great hobby of mine. I played piano for years for my church and now just do it on a substitute basis. I have a love of sharing with others my talents.
