I am available to work from home, and I am seeking part time employment in editing, writing or graphic design. I am a teacher who has a firm grasp of good grammar and desktop publishing. I earned a BA in Literary Studies and worked as a professional editor for a year before I began my teaching career. I now teach technology applications at the high school level, where my curriculum includes desktop publishing and graphic design skills. I wrote the curriculum for a multimedia course which all technology teachers in my large school district follow. My technology experience has grown with my editing experience. In college, I was an editor and a page designer for my college paper. The skills I gained there lent themselves to my current career and my eventual M.Ed. degree in technology curriculum and instruction. I am interested in freelance work in editing, copywriting and desktop publishing.
