Phyllis's resume

My education includes a BA in English, MAT in English and a PhD in Leadership and Human Behavior. I taught several years in high school; then at a community college, finally assisting university students to improve and edit their theses and dissertations. Mostly I enjoy helping others to improve their skills in verbal expression, both in writing and orally, thereby increasing their self confidence and desired results.
