High School teacher - was head of Geology and Geography in the UK as well as second in the Phys Ed department. Introduced and ran the IT side of the school which was probably my undoing in the end. Worked for 20 years in an inner city comprehensive before burning out and getting early retirement. Now a mixture of High School English, French, Sport, translation work, ski teaching and anything else that is fun, legal and will help pay the bills. Teaching in southern Germany so that I'm near my beloved Alps!

I was a stay at home Mom for 10 years (loved it), but we decided that a private school would be better for our sons so I went back to work.

I do HR/Admin Assistant type work.

Now if you ask what kind of work do I want to do ... Graphic Artist! I'm self taught, worked in Adobe Photoshop for over 12 years. I use to do my art with pencil, coal, chalks, oil paint.... but no I do everything on the comp and LOVE it!

www.kimberlyneville.com is my website .... I just got it up and am still working out the bugs :)

It's best viewed at 1024 x 768 and in IE. If anyone would like to look. I mostly do layer work... I explain it on the site.

 
18 years - 7 surgeries and 2 manipulations.
