I always thought that I would be a school teacher when I grew up. I was always wanting to play school and would even take home leftover homework sheets from the teacher so that I could be the perfect teacher. Dad picked up some old wooden desks from an auction and we were set. Surprisingly enough, everybody always wanted to play. I guess we didn't get enough of school. But as it turns out, when I grew up life had its twists and turns and that is not what happened.
I spent most of my life performing administrative duties for various companies. I also took on accounting and banking career paths. In 1997 I decided to go back to school to get a teaching degree. That lasted about 3 years. I found that my interest in English literature had consumed me. So, I graduated with a degree in English with minors in Education and Minority Studies. Now I am an aspiring writer.
The jobs I hold now I still teach in some form or another. I go in, learn the company processes, evaluate, re-write the processes and teach employees how to manage their time. I write Standard Operating Procedures manuals and produce handouts for Power Point presentations. The best part about all of that is I make money doing it. So I guess the long and short of it, I followed the correct path. Either way I look at it, I loved teaching as a child and I love it even more now.
