Learning Should Be Fun!

In the public system I taught Soph & Sr English and Theatre Arts. In the prison system I taught Life Skills and Pre-GED to those who neglected their education the first time around. And in the circus I taught across every subject for every age group of the Performers' children. The requirement for my Honors Thesis for graduation was 45 pages, but I delivered nearly 60.

The requirement for my Honors Thesis for graduation was 45 pages, but I delivered nearly 60. One semester was devoted to researching my topic; the second semester was dedicated to the writing of the thesis. I have taught Sophomore and Senior English at the high school level, and was editor and contributor for an annual university publication of short stories.

Study Skills

The key to being a "good" student is having strong, well-functioning methods for studying that which is being learned. As a student, I developed my own style of note-taking, adopted and adapted others' styles to my own, and practiced various forms of memorization and recall techniques. I have acquired enough knowledge and expertise to qualify for several subject areas because I have great study skills that can be adopted or adapted by my students with a little guidance from me. Additionally, I coached many of my students in my classrooms, and helped them improve their habits to achieve their goals.


Theater

In addition to my years standing before a classroom, I have 25+ years in Theatre - first in the university, then in the community - acting and directing. Theatre Arts is one of my certified fields in Oklahoma, but, unfortunately, that license has lapsed.


Cosmetology

From 1980 to 1996 I was a licensed cosmetologist, and worked in salons in Houston and El Paso before joining the Theatre department at UTEP as student/techie. I worked with hair styles, wigs, and makeup for nearly all university productions those years. I am no longer licensed, but I have forgotten nothing.
