Joined the Navy when I was 19; college was a misadventure. Loved the Navy, served almost 10 years. Finished my BA, and a got a teaching credential. Taught high school for 22 years (community college for 16 of those 22 as an adjunct professor). Served three years as a district level administrator (not my cup of tea). Presently teach elementary students, grades one through six how to keyboard and use technology.
Good mechanical skills. Solid understanding of plumbing and electrical. Teach technology skills among other subjects.
Just starting my list.
