It is a privilege to join all of you wonderful women on fairygodboss.com! As someone who was once a stay-at-home Mom, then worked at a career college for over a decade only to have it close, I have experienced the job market as a middle-aged woman. When my position ended at ITT Tech, it took me nine months (yes, the same time as the gestation of a baby) working four part-time jobs before I finally found full-time employment teaching at a high school. While teaching there, I have continued to further my education, earning an additional teacher certification as well as co-sponsoring a student club. As we navigate the pandemic, I continue to learn, grow, and face new challenges. I'm so happy to be here and honored to be invited!
