I am a former teacher of the handicapped with over twenty years of teaching experiences in the public and private schools. I also help my husband in his home remodeling business. I could probably build a house if I had to. I love to read , garden and of course interact with children of all ages. I gave up tenure to adopt a family and never was able to get back to a full time position. My resume makes me look like a gypsy. I have eclectic interests and very strong opinions. I have been urged to write by my professors, friends , colleagues but I never took the time, til now. I am blown away by the ability of so many hubbers. I have become addicted to this site.
