Geography Teacher in Past Life, Local Presence in New Life, Romania this Time

August 17, 2010

As a middle school instructor and grant writer for over 15 years, I had the challenging experience of teaching English, gifted studies, Introduction to Foreign Languages, Introduction to Mechanics for Girls, American History, Civics and Geography.

August 12, 2010

I didn't receive the MagicJack device yet, but did get the Nettalk new UNO. Waiting to get the MJ gadget first, so I can do a true comparison with videos, pics, charts, and text review mix.

Meanwhile, hey, the last 9 days of July and first 12 of August were FTL. I stopped to breathe for a second today and realized I haven't blogged on here in a while. Let me ask my thousands of wonderful IP communications related industry friends for one small favor.

Do you tweet?
