About Stephen

I am a Physical Education instructor with a wide range of experiences having taught at home and abroad. My teaching method incorporates mild to moderate exercise. I have also some training in the United States Army. I can incorporate a dietetic program if the student desires. I am very interested in training young adults aspiring to enter the Armed Forces. My degree spans ages 5-18 as a Physical Education instructor. I have a Collegiate Professional Certificate in the State of Virginia that will expire June 2016.
I do have a love for music too and would love to incorporate music with the training, if the student so desires. I would also be interested in teaching in a homebound setting. I played clarinet throughout my high school career and did attempt to write music. My music also spans the gamut of Clarinet playing to private lessons as a baritone. Another interesting thing about me is my upbringing on the old hymns but also have a love for the new contemporary style of music.
As a graduate student in a Linguistics program, I had training in language recognition. I would like to be some help to those individuals that are new immigrants to the United States. I was very fortunate to do a three year community service project as an ESL teacher in the state of Tennessee. My students hailed from Europe, Asia (India) Central, and Latin America. The project or program was organized by the Hamilton County Baptist Association. I also did some substituting in an ESL Class in the public school system in Chattanooga Tennessee.
During my time in the Seminary I was fortunate to have an opportunity to learn sign language. My Seminary had a hearing impaired population of almost 100 individuals.
Do hope I have sparked a number of students' interest and looking forward to meeting many of you.

I attended Tennessee Temple Baptist Seminary from 1978-89. I have taught Bible studies as a missionary in the South Pacific (Papua New Guinea) and Canada. My Bible studies consist of ages 6-20 years of age. I also begun a preaching ministry age 25. I am now age 61 and lead studies when asked. I have an associate's degree in linguistics and had been certified in sign English.

I set at my grandmother's knee at age 10 to listen to Bible stories. During my 11th year I read an entire Children Bible story book that was ordered for my brother and I. As a young adult I read through the Bible. I often read through the Bible every 4 years and have done such since age 21. I am now age 60 and plan to begin next year. I attended a seminary at age 24 and stayed until age 30. I also studied Bible in Canada at age 46. I studied linguistics in Missouri (New Tribes) school at age 50. I forgot to mention I did a Bible study in Papua New Guinea for tribal youth at age 42.
