From the time I knew what a teacher was, I wanted to be one. Teaching was my dream job. I was an educator for thirty years - twenty in the classroom and ten in administration. I was not disappointed - for me, still, being an educator is the most important and rewarding profession there is. I love to travel and to experience new cultures and ways of life and wanted my students to have the opportunity to experience these also, so I organized trips every few years to Europe and took as many students as wanted to go. Every time I saw a student in awe at seeing the “Mona Lisa”, Michelangelo’s “David”, Saint Peter’s Basilica or saw the confusion and sadness of visiting a concentration camp or the beaches of Normandy, I was experiencing it for the first time. After retiring as an educator, I became an independent contractor for a start-up company writing the scripts and overseeing the production process of making instructional videos for our client companies. During this time, I was lucky enough to spend five weeks in Singapore and China doing a needs’ assessment for a client company which allowed me to see and experience many things that the typical tourist never got a chance to experience making this the trip of a lifetime. Before I retired, I told everyone that when I retired, I wanted to get a job working in the front office of a clinic. I now am working in my second dream job! You cannot find a friendlier and more fun place to work. I love going to work!
