Usd 305 - At Risk Reading Teacher Resume Example

Hannah Wood
Professional Summary
I am a highly motivated, energetic and curious person.  I seek out new endeavors that allow me to experiment and have new challenges. I have strong organizational skills and am an expert at teaching. 

I have excellent communication, listening and interaction skills. I have been a life coach at the Pregnancy Service Center for over 3 years and "graduated" over 40 clients. PSC is a non-profit Christian organization that strives to help young parents who find themselves in a difficult, unplanned experience.  Our goal is to help them become better people FIRST through knowing Jesus Christ, which will then result in a better partner and parent. My role is to help new clients feel comfortable and explore their life's turns and use them to structure changes  that can lead to a more fulfilling life. 

This experience has helped me further development my compassion and patience!
