I love life, and I love our planet. I love to play guitar and read. I am currently a certified ELA teacher (grades seven through twelve), and work at a middle school as a reading intervention teacher. I have extensive experience with children of all ages. I love watching minds grow, including my own. I believe knowledge is power and play is essential. I am also certifed through Oxford Seminars to teach English as a second or foreign language and eventually plan to teach abroad. I also have excellent experience in freelance writing and editing, and have used these skills to earn money in the past, but now I'm excited to trade skills!
