"People have always guessed that I was a teacher as if I had it emblazoned on my forehead! In fact, as a child I was the neighborhood teacher conducting class in our garage. In college I wanted to know French so well that I could teach English in France. However, after 6 years of French that never materialized, and I didn't make it to France until about 30 yrs later.

"People have always guessed that I was a teacher as if I had it emblazoned on my forehead! In fact, as a child I was the neighborhood teacher conducting class in our garage. In college I wanted to know French so well that I could teach English in France. However, after 6 years of French that never materialized, and I didn't make it to France until about 30 yrs later. Amazing how I could still carry on a conversation in French after all that time!! I truly love the language!

I also love the English language - writing, grammar, spelling, editing, phonics, English as a Second Language (ESL)- geography, anatomy and physiology, and medical terminology. My BA is in Sociology.

I have several Natural Health and Wellness certificates mainly through on-line courses with the American Nutraceutical Association, Proevity, and the American International Association of Nutritional Education. I have been a Natural Health and Wellness Coach for many years.

I have taught and tutored ESL for several years at the Des Moines Area Community College(DMACC), through WyzAnt, and have volunteer tutored English at the Drake Adult Literacy Center and ESL at the Lutheran Services of Iowa refugee center.

A little about me personally. I am friendly with an easy smile, caring, sincere, inspiring, and a good listener. Energetic, patient, thorough, detail-oriented, dedicated, organized, reliable, and competent. The contribution I can make in helping others is what both drives me and nourishes my soul!" less...
