  • surrenderI've been a Special Ed Team Chair (unofficial Dept. Head) for the past 7 years, previous to that I taught Special Ed for 12 years. Only two of those years were outside of a public school system. Hopefully my next job will be: lottery winner. LOL!

  • UGh..dont ask me the timelines, I cant remember that far back. LOL. Lets see here. My first job was fast food. Personally I believe that is a great place for a teen to start. Bottom of the bucket and not a place you want to stay at for very long, I lasted 3 months. Then they opened a dept store at the mall and I got a cashier position in junior world. That was probably 3 yrs. Then I went back to college and wanted to do something in the childcare field so I became a pre-school helper. That was about a year. Onto not wanting to be a pre-school teacher,,lol and getting a job at a mail order firm where I punched computers all day. Finally got the job I have now, for 26 yrs, as a mail handler. geez, that just tired me out!
