Profession: Teacher and a Student
Teaching Experience: I started teaching Adults. I taught the following subjects: Pitmans Typing, beginner, intermediate and advanced, WordPerfect, Multimate, Lotus, ESOL, Bookkeeping, Business Communication and Business English. All this was taught before the advent of Microsoft. Our computer courses were all based on DOS at the time. I went on to teach Computer Literacy to Primary School children. The curriculum covered - What is a computer, The parts of a computer, Binary Code and how to use the computer. Children were also taught to use Microsoft Word, PowerPoint and Excel. The smaller children were taught to use Paint and Notepad to start off with. Teachers at the school also joined the Computer Literacy class to further their learning of the computer packages available. I have also had the great privilege of being able to work with children who have ADD and combine them with using horses. It is a successful program that runs here as part of the Dare to Dream Project.
Interests: Horse riding and owning horses. Love to cook and study. Enjoy reading and doing arts and crafts.
