    Canada - Last active: 3 months ago - Tests: 7

    I have a Bachelor of the Arts degree in English with a Minor in Communications. I have a MS License to teach English and Reading, but having just moved to BC, it cannot be used. Thus I am seeking a work from home position that will give me the opportunity and freedom to be successful in my new area, while working on obtaining my new Licensure. I was also Human Resources/Training Coordinator for Walmart for 8 years, so paperwork is no problem. I can type between 50-75 WPM without errors, depending on sentence structure, accurate punctuation, and the amount of necessary times to "shift" the keyboard. I am open to any questions and feedback you may have for me.
