I was a child care site director for a YMCA School-Age Child Care program for 7 years, taught 3rd grade for 3 years, was a half-day literacy teacher (K-6) and a half-day German teacher (9-12) for one year. Then, I taught German, Spanish, and French at the High School Level. I have also started a GAPP-exchange program with my old high school in Germany; I have taken groups of students to Germany twice, and our next trip is planned for 2012. Our numbers have grown, so I am now teaching German full time. I have also been an adjunct instructor at a community college for the past 10 years, teaching classes in Early Childhood Education, including introductory and lab classes, Language and Cognition, Nutrition, Health, and Safety, Working with Families, Creativity, Curriculum, etc. On occasion, I have taught Early Childhood Education and Education classes for a private university, including undergraduate and graduate Educational Technology classes.
