I am a 54 year old empty-nester looking to start a new way of life which supports my family's well being. I home schooled my children, the youngest of whom just left for college.
I hope to augment my very modest income as a tutor and contribute more financially, while still remaining largely available to my wonderful husband of 33 years. I have had difficulty finding regular employment, because my twenty years as a home educator make American public school systems uneasy, and the employers of the United Arab Emirates, where I currently live, prefer not to hire women in my age group. I am through regretting these circumstances. All this means is that there is an opportunity waiting for me in a direction I have not yet explored.
I spent 8 years in the U. S. Marines, I hold a current teaching license with the state of Virginia in secondary mathematics.
My interests include sailing, hiking, canoeing, education and all things related to family health and nutrition.
