Originally from the Midwest, Carol has lived not only in Arizona, but also in London, England and La Paz, Bolivia. After fifteen years living in South America, Carol and her family left family and friends and returned to the US, choosing Greensboro, North Carolina as their new home. Happily, both sides of the family now have extended family members that live in the Triad area. Throughout her life, Carol has enjoyed meeting new people and discovering new places while learning about the cultures and history surrounding her.
Career-wise she has continually been able to apply both her background in teaching and her Spanish speaking and writing skills in a variety of positions. Her varied job experience includes: Program Coordinator for the Illinois State Migrant Program’s Early Prevention of School Failure Summer, Bilingual Diagnostician and LD Resource Teacher for the Department of Special Education in both Tucson and Phoenix, Arizona, Primary School Principal at Saint Andrew’s School, and Learning Specialist for the American Cooperative School, both in La Paz, Bolivia.
Carol thoroughly enjoys the beautiful greenery and the changing of the seasons here in Greensboro as well as spending time with family and friends. Reading, cooking, swimming, dancing, and exercising are high on her list of fun things to do.
