  • Description

    I am a high school teacher. I teach chemistry, math (algebra), biology, and Latin. I want to improve my Spanish, Italian,and French.

    I love the life that comes from accomplishing a goal with others--the camaraderie and community that comes from sharing talent and time is what makes me love Workaway so much!

    My background: I have university degrees in chemical engineering, philosophy, and theology. I know how to make soap (I grew up with a family soap business!), brew beer, and bake bread. I enjoy working with my hands and fixing bicycles. I come from a large family, so living with others is not a challenge for me. I love teaching and tutoring--watching a student gain CONFIDENCE through mastery of a difficult subject makes teaching worth while!
