I have been a teacher for 20 years teaching mainly math and science. I was a Math/Science coach for 6 years. I will be self contained this year so I need to learn how to teach elementary reading again. I teach reading at Valencia College, students are very different at this level. In my limited spare time, I like to make jewelry and paint. I am a third degree black belt in TaeKwonDo and hold belts in 2 other styles of martial arts as well. I have 2 grown children. My son lives in my home town of Birmingham, Alabama, and my daughter and her husband live with me at them moment.
