Bio for New Horizons Student Handbook

Hi, I'm Pat Nelson from the great state of Alabama. I'm a wife, a mother of two adopted children, and a proud grandma to three beautiful grandchildren.

Because the power company insists on being paid and the bank kind of likes for me to make regular house payments, I work as a Child Support Worker for the State of Alabama. The first seventeen years of my career were spent teaching elementary school. Through no planning on my part, I found myself with a new career, and for the last twenty-three years, I've been enjoying the challenges of locating non-custodial parents, establishing paternity and support orders, and enforcing them (with the Court's help, of course).

I'm a huge fan of Science Fiction. My favorite authors are Sharon Lee and Steve Miller, Stephen King, and Dean Koontz. At the other end of the spectrum, I've read every book written by Janette Oke at least three times. Right now I'm lost in the Liaden Universe (Series) and can't seem to find my way out. It's a huge series, and I can't seem to get enough of it. Sharon Lee and Steve Miller are masters at creating scenes in which the reader can almost see the actual movements of the characters as they engage in the dialogue or action. If you love drama, intrigue, action, and some good old fashion humor and romance, this series is for you.

I have recently been recruited by GabriellaR45 to participate in a new program in which I will have the opportunity to help new Rising Stars members hone their abilities to Review. I'm looking forward to beginning that this month.

I was thrilled to have the opportunity to get back into teaching by way of "New Horizons Academy . I've learned a lot as a teacher in the virtual classroom. Whatever you guys learn from me won't match what I learn from you. You will be my yardstick to measure how my lessons, assignments, and teaching methods hold up in the arena of the classroom. I can hardly wait! Please don't delay in introducing yourselves to your classmates and to me by posting a "REPLY" to THIS MESSAGE. Do not start new threads unless you have a specific question about a lesson we are on.
