I graduated from Elmira College with a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary Education and Political Science. I earned my 160 hour Advanced Certificate in Teaching English as a Foreign Language (TEFL) in addition to my 120 hour TEFL Certificate. I worked in the Banking Industry for about 15 years. I raised three wonderful sons and enjoyed participating actively in the PTA as PTA Chairperson. For over two years I have worked with two companies in China teaching English online to students between the ages of 5 and 15. I taught Level 1 through 8 courses. In addition, I qualified to teach 25 supplementary courses including writing, speaking, public speaking, phonics, grammar, vocabulary, and free talk. I love teaching and my students. There is nothing better than the moment when a student achieves success. In my spare time, I enjoy reading and I love seeing Broadway shows. I also enjoy listening to music and knitting.
