Service Description

As a veteran educator, I have developed curriculum, written syllabi, delivered instruction, and assessed learning. I have served as a mentor for colleagues in evalutating SAT writing prompts, using electronic and Web-based gradebooks, and implementing Google applications. As a retailer, I have trained new employees and provided expert customer service in both the grocery and jewelry industry. Through my involvement in the local retail community, I was responsible for several retail promotions, including the creation of a city-wide yard sale. I also created the slogan for my city's sesquicentennial celebration. Service to the community includes writing portions of a history of the town, both biographical and narrative in nature. During my graduate studies, I wrote concise academic papers and created numerous PowerPoint presentations.
