Counseling Experience:

Teacher and Counselor – Page County Public Schools,

My teaching assignments were ninth, 10th and 12th grade English classes. I worked half time in the guidance office and taught half time. I was faculty advisor for the yearbook and the newspaper and worked on a curriculum development committee. I also worked closely with the career development specialist during the school year and worked as a counselor in a summer program for disadvantaged youth.


My special interests are reading, gardening, caring for my dogs and enjoying my family.
