Working at the district office for a total of 6 years I received various training opportunities to further my knowledge.

Usually, I tend to support my husband with different interpretations or translations that are needed at his office. Also, during my free time, when the opportunity arises, I tend to volunteer either at the district I work at or at my husband's school. There have been different opportunities such as starting a whole brand new program, with iPad devices for middle school students. Most of the time though I tend to look for opportunities where I can continue using my interpreting and translating skills. It is one of the many skills that I truly enjoy.
