My life goal is to work with an organization that helps people help themselves through education on a microeconomic level. With varied skills that have changed and adjusted with every job, my desire to participate in the global village is very strong and I am always looking for an opportunity to follow dreams wherever they may take me. Extensive international travel is in my background with 20 years of education and business. I have taught students from three to 73 years in many different subject areas; Business Marketing and Management, ESL/EFL, Composition, Reading Comprehension (that covers some of the ares I taught to adults). I currently work with bilingual Hispanic children, teaching in both English and Spanish. I have been an Art teacher and play a couple of musical instruments well enough to encourage my students to take up music when it is available to them. It is my absolute belief that we are capable of doing and accomplishing ANYTHING that we set our minds to...whether we are thinking negatively or positively is our own choice. Working backwards chronologically, I currently live in Southern New Jersey. Prior to my return to New Jersey, I lived in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Hanoi, Vietnam, Bangkok, Thailand, Guangzhou, P.R. China, Rabat, Morocco, Terhijden, Netherlands, Sacramento and Monterey, California, Frankfurt, Germany (born). As a result of living in the various countries I have learned to get by in Spanish, French, Chinese, and Khmer. My English is fluent and the other languages improve when they are used.
