description of :
I've been the webmaster of a liturgical Christianity-oriented site for three years, and am a recently-commissioned Eucharistic Minister.
Teacher's qualifications:
Current: Small Business Owner (The Celtic Rebel)
I am currently in the start-up stages of a mail order/Internet retail business owned by myself and a family member. We specialize in a variety of goods from handmade jewelry and rosaries to books and CD's from independent artists and authors. My job includes maintaining our website, processing orders, and promotions.

October 2001-June 2005: Volunteer Community Leader (AOL)
My duties as a community leader involve welcoming new members to the messageboard that I host, assisting members with using the board and AOL software, keeping the discussion on topic, and notifying AOL of any problems that occur. I left the program only because AOL was discontinuing it.

October 2002-July 2003: Retail Merchandiser (Hallmark)
As a retail merchandiser, my job involved keeping the card department neat, re-ordering product, setting up seasonal displays, preparing unsold product to be returned to the company after a holiday, periodic spot audits, and inventory preparation.

September 1998-June 1999: Library Page (Town of Andover, MA)
When I worked as a library page, I was assigned to the Interlibrary Loan department. I assisted the ILL staff with office tasks, helped fill orders, and prepared items for shipment. Prior to that, I was a volunteer at the same library.

September 1994-November 1998 Political Volunteer
I was a volunteer for a Massachusetts state representative for two of his campaigns, and helped by answering phones, doing mailings, making calls to remind voters of the election, and other help around the office as needed.

Other Skills/Information:
Licensed Eucharistic Minister in my denomination
HTML/web design
Microsoft Office experience
7 years of Internet experience


's preferred teaching style:
My teaching methods for this course will allow students to learn at their own pace while still allowing for interaction with me.
