To find a work environment in which I can serve populations in need. Ideally, this would be an environment directly involved in education, support services, or career placement.
I have most recently spent five years working as an educator in public middle and high schools. I have taught English, language arts, reading, Read180, and state test remedial courses to various grade levels.
As of this fall, I will be returning to school to pursue my Master's degree in library and information science with an emphasis on school librarianship.
Before I taught, I worked in several busy law offices. I was responsible for client care, data entry, file clerking, receptionist duties, and very detail-oriented duties in preparing client documents for legal use.
These above jobs coupled with my education and teaching background give me a very unique set of skills. I am proficient in major office software such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Access. I am experienced in communicating with all types of people for all types of reasons. I am great at organizing people and supplies and keeping order in any environment. Last but not least, I am very experienced in working with young people, especially those in special needs and at-risk populations.
