I worked at Southwestern Medical School as an administrative asst to a professor there in OB/GYN. Then I began teaching in Plano and taught for 30 years. I'm now subbing for Plano ISD and also teach SAT classes at a Chinese school here. I live in an apartment in downtown Plano now and enjoy that.

Update: I just became the English Educational Consultant for a charter school in Garland, TX, and I'm excited!
