"Teaching in the Public Schools

I am an experienced teacher that has taught in the public schools for over three decades at virtually all grade levels, though the majority of the years were at the elementary level - mostly fourth and fifth grades. I also have taught remedial reading and writing at the middle school level, and social studies (current world problems and US history) at the high school level.

Social Studies Teacher

I also worked with fourth and fifth grade students to introduce and have passed two concurrent resolutions in the Idaho state legislature, with our students giving the opening debate in the House and Senate committees on both occasions.

I also interned in Congress for a summer -- working back in Washington, D.C. in the congressman's office. I also have traveled, am certified in Spanish and French, and lived in other cultures (as a Pea" less...
