I am certified through the state of Florida in 3 areas of teaching (Reading, English 6-12 and Middle Grade Curriculum). I have taught Reading/English for 5 years. I also have a background in editorial work. I worked for an independent book publishing company out of Ft. Myers, Florida as an assistant and then an assistant editor. I am credited in works published by this company. Also, I have worked as a contract editor for an internationally known timeshare company in editing websites for the company and buyers. My teaching certification and writing courses have provided me knowledge in the field of editing and writing.
