I'm looking forward to the new school year! I coordinate student employment at Plano East Senior High School and manage the Career Preparation program. This includes five classes of work experience students who receive graduation credit for class/paid employment.
Our students work in a variety of fields in Plano and our surrounding cities. If you are interested in students working for your business, contact me directly - email@example.com
This is my 25nd year as a teacher and I've really enjoyed my time at Plano East Senior High School. I love this school because of student diversity and a positive vibe of acceptance throughout the community.
Before teaching, I spent eight years in the U.S. Army as an NCO - Aviation Operations and Combat Medic.
Previous employment included: Wal-Mart, Target, Feagins Grocery, Gringo's Restaurant, Central Texas College (U.S. History Instructor). I have additionally owned/operated an organic garden farm specializing in host/nectar plants for butterflies.

Hobbies and Interests - Traveling has always been an exciting part of my life. As a family, we have vacationed in New Orleans, Boston, and Victoria Island, Canada. A cruise to Mexico was also very refreshing. I enjoy organic vegetable farming - this summer, we grew onions, garlic, asparagus, zucchini, yellow squash, various peppers, turnips, radishes, cucumbers, various tomatoes, green beans and black-eyed peas. Our garden this year measured about 100 by 80; the harvest this past summer was substantial and overwhelming. I have 10 chickens as well.
As well, I enjoyed my adventures in the Boy Scout of America and most proud of my rank as an Eagle Scout.
