    Writing/Lesson Planning/Educator and More

    United States - Portfolio: 2

    I am a retired schoolteacher with 25 years of experience specializing in middle school science and math, but have experience in all subject areas. I am particular and careful about what needs to be in print, and I also know how to present information to readers in an easy-to-understand format. I was a lead teacher for my district training other educators in the benefits of hands-on learning and other content areas related to effective teaching in the classroom. The skills I have lend themselves to many other jobs unrelated to education. You will not be disappointed by my work.
