About

I am retired from full-time teaching, and now tutor in a specialized program for students who have been unsuccessful in the school setting. Before retiring I taught high school special education, specializing in science/math though I taught all core subjects. Prior to that I taught elementary level special education. Before changing careers, I worked as a scientist in research labs. I have a master's degree in special education. I am a member of Mensa, and a 4-time winner on Jeopardy! I have four children of my own, and am interested in virtually everything.
