New Teacher Reflections: I worked in the Graphics industry from 1983 to 2008, I got laid off on October 29th of 2008.
However, beginning in July 2003 I returned to school and had begun working on a Teaching Credential and a Masters Degree in Education. , and, having completed most of my in-class studies by Sept. 2005, I took a break from classes from 2005 - 2008, to work for a public relations firm. As soon as I was laid off, I returned to school to complete my teaching credential and Masters in Education. On August 30, 2010 I started my new career as an Art and Design Teacher at Kearny High School, a mere 2-mile walk from my house. To say I'm really excited about it would be the biggest understatement of the century. I began posting information, tutorials and examples for my students on my class website, which I hope to link my students' sites to eventually. The class site is www.CaptivArting.com. I've been married and divorced twice and have three awesome children, (2 from the 1st and 1 from the 2nd). My two older children are in my friends list, under the names, Erika Bresee and Jonathan Bresee (long story, best left for the next reunion), and my youngest daughter, Alexa, is a freshman in high school in the fall of 2012.
