"I have held both Nevada and Utah teaching licenses.

I attended Southern Utah State College--now Southern Utah University--in Cedar City, where I earned a B.A. degree in Political Science, with a minor in Speech. Later I attended the University of Nevada, Las Vegas for three semesters to complete the education classes and student teaching I needed to earn a Nevada Educational License. I also qualified and certified to teach English, and a few years later added a Journalism endorsement.

I taught for eleven years at the Adult Education High School, Horizon High School, and at Rancho High School for the Clark County School District, Las Vegas, NV.

This past Spring semester I did substitute teaching for the Salt Lake City School District.
