  Welcome to my webpage!
   I continue working as a house-parent & science teacher at Agape Corner Boarding School in Durham, NC. (The photo above shows me standing behind 2 former & 1 current student a few years ago.) 
    In Dec. 2007, I graduated from a CNA I (nurse aide) course, but I've only done occasional part-time work as a CNA.
    I'm not sure if I should focus on being a science teacher or if I should go into health-care. Perhaps someday I could use both science/health education and simple health-care skills by serving in a Third-World country like Colombia.

  Jesus loves you so much that He wants to have a personal relationship with you.
