Objective My goal is to be a noted illustrator of children’s books.
Experience 2008-2011 Richmond County School System Augusta, GA
Third Grade and Kindergarten Teacher
I taught two years as a third grade teacher at Jenkins White Charter Elementary School. In the fall of 2010, there were not enough positions for the teachers hired for that year so I volunteered to transfer to Southside to teach Kindergarten so the new teachers would not have to move.

1994-2008 Troup County School System West Point, GA
Kindergarten Teacher, First and Second Grade Teacher
I have taught a looping program at Rosemont Elementary in which one teacher works with the same group of students for two consecutive years of their formal education. I transferred to West Point Elementary to be closer to my home in 2001.

1984-1991 Troup County School System LaGrange, GA
Kindergarten Teacher
I taught Kindergarten in my first year of teaching. I was transferred to Rosemont Elementary when the city schools were consolidated with the county.

1976-1984 Milliken & Co. LaGrange, GA

I maintained production records and reports for various departments within the Live Oak plant. I was responsible for payroll accounting and speed checks on machinery within the plant.

Summary My experiences have been with education of children and now that I am retired, I want to pursue another love of mine which is art. I have drawn and painted (watercolor and acrylics) all my life in my extra time. Now I want to do it for a living. I can send you photos of my art or I can do a sample for you if you tell me the details of what you are looking for. I am flexible and can make changes to my work to make it what you want in the illustrations of your story.
