Joined 11 years ago from Jamaica
I have taught for twenty-eight years in different parts of the world including the Caribbean, UK and USA. That experience gave me the acumen to put together some very interesting compositions:

My BA degree was done at The University of the West Indies (UWI), specializing in social science, language and literature. I speak and write three official languages: English, French and Spanish, plus my native Jamaican vernacular. My passion is writing and educating. I wrote my first book, Tricks and Trades of the Jamaican Man in 2004, details of which can be found at http://www.vernonbrooks.com/tricks-and-trades-of-the-jamaican-man.php. However, my premier publication appeared in the form of an article - No Hard Feelings: Finding the Focus in a Teacher-Student Function - in The High School Journal October-November 2005 Volume 89 N0. 1 (accepted in 2004).

I have offered my word of advice to weight-watchers in the following presentations:
Proof of my language versatility can be contemplated at my bi-lingual blogs:
