Earlier today I was thinking about how long it has been since I've been in the workforce. Before having kids, I got my college degree in Elementary Education and taught for 6 years. Then I chose to take the path of stay-at-home mommy. I've loved every minute of it!
So just for fun, I thought I would update my resume and see what jobs I would be qualified for. (This was all in the name of fun.)
