Worked as a foreign English teacher with students of all ages in a private language center. Followed predesigned lesson plans for classes that provided practice of oral English and key language concepts which had previously been studied in accompanying course-ware. Additionally I designed lesson plans and provided instruction for corporate training, Junior High School courses and Comparative Culture classes.
Taught English as a foreign language to primary school students in grades fifth and sixth. Duties included designing lesson plans with the purpose of making language learning interesting to children, giving oral English instruction, grading homework assignments, creating and grading tests.
I supervised three daily delivery routes within the Shreveport and Bossier areas as well as one out of town route which ran twice weekly. I handled receiving and processing of shipments to the warehouse. I kept the inventory organized and free of debris and regularly checked inventory against counts within the database to ensure accuracy.
I worked in the Radiation department of the Cancer Treatment center. My job tittle was Blockcutter which is a position which is technically part of the physics department. However my duties expanded throughout the whole Radiation department. As a blockcutter my primary responsibility was to create metal blocks which were used for the purpose of targeting while treating patients. However most of my duties involved general office work which included; filing, creating patient charts and files, keeping track of the whereabouts of those charts, answering phones, taking and relaying messages, running errands. I helped to lift, move or immobilized when needed. I also assisted the patients, doctors and other staff whenever needed.
I attended the University of Phoenix during the last two years of my degree. My major of concentration at Phoenix was in Psychology. The courses at Phoenix focused heavily on written assignments as well as team projects. I feel that the written assignments cultivate essential habits in critical and analytically thinking and force the student to present their understanding of a subject in clear and precise language. At the same time, I believe that the emphasis on team work is invaluable. Through team projects you learn how to effectively communicate and work with other members of a team, managing conflicts while pursuing common goals in order to meet an important deadline.
In 2007 I returned to school full time. I completed my core curriculum at Bossier Parrish Community College earning an Associate's before attending Phoenix.
