I began volunteer teaching Japanese language in the early 2000s, with little hope of leaving the private sector. My interest was in maintaining a level of proficiency but I also enjoyed watching students, who had no prior experience with language learning, embrace Japanese language and culture. Below is a career timeline. Specific skills and qualifications can be found in my resume
After retiring from Medtronic Sofamor Danek (Medtronic, Inc.) in 2015, I accepted a position with Healthcare Corporation of America, HCA.
HCA relocated me to Nashville, TN. Upon one year, following, I married and moved to Saucier, Mississippi, a small rural town near Gulfport, MS. My husband was so supportive of my desire to teach Japanese language, he suggested that I return to school and embark on a teaching career.
We both understood the challenges that I would face, with few teaching experiences combined with years of volunteer positions. To further pursue my interests, I founded a small nonprofit organization, focused on introducing Japanese language to students in rural communities and providing language and culture labs for learners whose interests may not be met with opportunities for language study. The resume omits my work experience prior to career realignment to focus on teaching Japanese language. Below is my curriculum vitae.
Work hard, be kind, and amazing things will happen.Conan O’Brien
