Hello! I'm looking forward to meeting you and assisting you with your interests/studies. I grew up in Ohio, and taught French there in grades 4-6 for eight years. Also worked in summer camps where I taught swimming, boating, life-saving, archery, marksmanship . Then I married and moved to Wisconsin where I taught French in grades 4-8 for three years while getting my Ph.D. Also sang in and directed church choirs. Moved to Louisiana, now with two children, taught French and English as a second language at the University of Louisiana for eight years, then to Saudi Arabia for 17 years where I was in charge of accounting training and met lots of interesting people from all over the world. I've been in Las Vegas for 16 years, teaching ESL and French, doing lots of swimming and boating, as well as church music. I hope you will find my training and experience(s) helpful to your career.--John
