I am on the search for a job in the middle Tennessee area. I have a BA in history/education (as of March 7th, 2010). I am certified to teach history, geography, and government in grades 7-12. My PRAXIS scores were as follows: PLT 7-12th – 176; History (CK) – 175; Geography – 740; Government – 760. I am a retired Army Desert Storm veteran with 21.8 years. I am willing to coach cross-country and be the assistant coach for any sport. I am also willing to sponsor a class, the student council, speech and debate, and most any other student organization.
I believe my previous experience in the military will benefit any school district in which I work. It provided me the opportunity to work in various environments, under extreme conditions with individuals from diverse ethnic, religious, and cultural backgrounds. During that time, I was responsible for, among other things:
– the training and care of anywhere from four to forty individuals
– coordinating with other offices for the completion of intelligence requirements
– the completion of numerous intelligence products in response to specific requests from higher headquarters or questions from subordinate units and intelligence consumers
– daily intelligence briefings
During my time at school (1995, 2006-2010) I have achieved a 3.5 GPA while often working two part-time jobs to remain my family’s primary wage-earner, and staying involved with my family. I am a member of Phi Kappa Phi (top 10% of the senior class & 2nd oldest interdisciplinary honor society), Phi Alpha Theta (History honor society), and the National Forensic League (Debate and Speech National Honor Society). I was a peer mentor for incoming freshmen and a peer tutor for a history survey class. I was also a registration assistant. I was also asked to speak on a regular basis to incoming freshmen at the university’s extension campus on a local military installation, which was composed of mostly non-traditional students. Most recently, I have been working as a student assistant in the university library.
My resume is available upon request from a verified school district. I can be reached via the comments section. If you leave a comment with your email address, I will not post the comment but I will send a resume to the email address.
