I reside in Knoxville and decided to teach after I earned a Master's at the age of 48 and so I am a late comer to the education system. I have found working with today's young people so exciting and rewarding. There is never a dull moment with all the lively minds in the classroom, and the greatest boon of all about teaching is that I, too, learn something new every day! I love teaching language and translating/interpreting also. How great to deal with our uniquely human way to express desires and experiences to one another!
