Life Preparations
In the years before dedicating my career to education, I worked:
at SCM in a typewriter factory on an assembly line,
at Vesta Corset in an office completing payroll and accounts receivable,
as a nutrition counselor,
as a waitress,
as a stay at home mom with my two children,
and on my family's farm.

“Placing value on education, educators, family, and community creates an environment where we can most likely reach our goals.  We may then strive for the next generation of learners to grow into productive members of society with the tools they need to lead the life in which they are destined”
